This year’s spring musical, Fiddler on the Roof, centers on the Jewish milkman, Tevye and his five daughters. It explores topics of immigration and the breaking of traditions in the Jewish culture. Director Annemarie Ullman is bringing something new to the table this year and attempting to draw parallels between the play and current issues of immigration.
Fiddler on the Roof will be running from March 9–12 in the Carol Channing Theater.
