Saw fidler on the roof about 5 years ago at the Walnut Street Theater. Love love LOVED it. Wanted to see it again the following night badley but had no one to go with, made me so sad. Can't wait to see it again.Excellent show. Second level better than floor seats.

This was probably the 15th time I've seen Fiddler, including 2x with Zero Mostel. This was without a doubt one of the best performances I've seen. The Israeli actor that played Tevye was outstanding. He didn't try to copy any of the actors that came before him, but rather he gave the character his own touch, and it was great. The entire cast was top notch . We are season ticket holders so we had the same seats we've had for the last 7 seasons and they were, as always, great. No matter how many times you've seen this show before, this is definitely worth the time to see again.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Saturday matinee and thought Fiddler On The Roof is the BEST show I've seen all season, bar none. The choreography and scenery were outstanding, and the cast was simply brilliant in their performance of this beautiful story. I was dismayed that the audience laughed at one point when the Rabbi was praying, which is most likely due to them not understanding the action. The music and singing was rousing, beautiful, and sometimes haunting, and I loved it all. Don't miss this!

Without giving away important moments of connection here and now, this beautiful, historical, intimate story speaks to our current precarious times and to borrow the Hamilton message and maybe the Beatles - love is love is love is love is love comes through loud and clear. Tradition? It's much more than that, we are family on this planet earth and respect for each other, tolerance and love is all we need.

The acting was wonderful, the sets minimal but effective, music outstanding. How did the men keep those bottles on their heads and dance, too????? Such a powerful performance of a basically sad story, but with added humor. Main character was fantastic. So glad my daughter asked me to go. The only thing was I wished the Fiddler had actually been on a roof., not just off to the side of the stage or walking across the stage. But I still give the performance 5 stars. Highly recommend going to see it.

I went to the October 16, 2019 showing. I was taken back by the incredible talent displayed in every sceen. It was so enjoyable, I'm still talking about it. Thank you for giving me such an enjoyable evening.

Tevye was a great breath of fresh air, absolutely loved Yehezkel Lazarov's rendition. His performance was top notch, his dancing and singing so natural and full of great energy. Did not like Yenta however, she was very 'flat' for use of a better word. . This is my 3rd time seeing Fiddler.
