Tours and Tickets

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Loved everything about this production and I don’t even know Yiddish! I would have loved it for the music alone, but was impressed with every aspect of the show. See it before it closes!

A real-life fight between time and traditions
Aug 2019 • Couples
If you think that your life is harsh – check “Fiddler on the Roof”. I have to thank BroadwayPass for the opportunity to see this classic. Those guys are new but are already ahead of the old dogs vividseats and stubhub.
I was fascinated by this story. It is one of the most sophisticated shows that I’ve ever seen. A harsh story of the old man and father Tevye and his battle against time and the decline of traditions (none of his daughters married the man he wants, one even didn’t marry a Jew). The time is set in the early 20th Century. It was a difficult time for most of the world, and mostly – to the Jews all over Europe. They are discriminated and terrorized through the musical. They even get attacked during the wedding of one of his daughters. After that they are expelled from their home.
His daughters don’t follow the old tradition of getting marry to whom the matchmaker says (they had this, imagine that). His first daughter marries her beloved (despite being matched to an old guy by that matchmaker. Then again what a triumph for love!). His second daughter marries her tutor and goes with him to exile in Siberia. His third marries a Russian boy from the village, that later goes with her away. Well, Love – 3, Traditions – 0. Hurray for Love!
The cast did superb job in representing the harsh times from the early 20th century. Danny Burstein did an amazing job as Tevye and represented his battles for keeping the traditions alive in a great manner. Judy Kuhn did a good job as Golde (Tevye’s wife for 25 years). The moment when he asks her if she ever loved him still makes my heart warm. Samantha Massell was great as Hodel, his rebellious second daughter that followed his even more rebellious husband in Siberia. They did the unthinkable when they danced together at Tzeitel’s wedding. The others were nonetheless great.
The music scores were great. They did an amazing job to enhance the effect of the actor play. The most worth noting are "If I Were a Rich Man", "To Life", "Sunrise, Sunset", "Do You Love Me?".
Now that I’m done with the musical, I’m off to read the stories and see the movie.

Sublime Theatrical Production
Aug 2019
Superb production. Trust me, purchase a ticket and be ready to be blown away. Frankly, I stopped reading subtitles a third of the way through. I knew what was going on at all times, and I don't speak Yiddish (but my smattering of German did help).

Amazing
Jul 2019 • Couples
This production has to be one of the best shows on Broadway. The cast is wonderful, just as good if not better than the original. The theater is people friendly, leg room and seating is very comfortable. The theater is small, so you can see the show from any seat with no problem. The presentation is in Yeddish with easy to read titles in English.This show is a must to see for anyone. Not to be missed.

Wonderful!
Jul 2019
This theater is wonderful, I loved it!
However, I believe it’s more interested for jewish people, even because all know about fiddler on the roof.
The actors are very very good!! The sing wonderfully, all of them! There are also dancings very nice.
The only thing that I would say that was not good is that all the show is in Idishe (mix of hebrew and german). They show subtitles in the extremities but it’s bad to watch the whole show trying to read and see the artists.

Fiddler in the Hood
Nov 2018 • Friends
I guess I am a traditionalist. I was 6 the first time I saw Fiddler on the Roof and have a vivid memory of the Original Broadway production. Now, as a person of both African American and Jewish heritage, I feel that I am well positioned to speak on the matter. I was offended for both sides of my family. I loved Jerome Robbins choreography; it needed no improvement. I loved the research that went into taking us to the shtetls of 1904 Russian. In this production for some odd reason, we decided to choreograph something between Broadway and breakdancing and for those who love Disneyfied version of Fiddler, I am sure it worked. But I came to see Fiddler on the Roof not Fiddler in the Hood.

This was an outstanding revival of Fiddler on the Roof. I have seen a few Broadway performances of the show and this show never disappoints.

I had seen the movie so I didn't expect to be so emotionally drawn into the show. But was thoroughly surprised. The performance was fantastic.
