Fiddler on the Roof tickets

Please note that Fiddler on the Roof uses a different Stalls layout to the Playhouse's usual format. This means our seating map doesn't reflect the Stalls as they are for this particular run.

Following a five-star rated run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Fiddler on the Roof receives its well-deserved West End transfer. Trevor Nunn’s high-spirited revival of the classic musical comes to Playhouse Theatre for a strictly limited season, where it is presented in a specially tailored immersive space. Step into the world of Tevye and his daughters from 21 March.

Living in a Jewish community in Imperial Russia, milkman Tevye strives to maintain his Jewish cultural and religious traditions despite the intrusion of the Russian authorities. To his displeasure, his three eldest daughters are determined to marry for love, whether or not their chosen suitors fit their father’s criteria. As he balances a love for his family with respect for his religion, Tevye is pulled one way and the other, with comical but sometimes tragic consequences. It’s a tale of tradition and progress, of love and duty. It includes a great many famous songs, such as "Sunrise, Sunset", "Tradition", "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" and "If I Were a Rich Man".

The original Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof opened in 1964 and soon earned itself nine Tony Awards. Boasting music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and a book by Joseph Stein, it was one of the longest-running shows in Broadway history and went on to spawn a successful film adaptation in 1971.

Andy Nyman reprises his role as Tevye alongside Maria Friedman as Golda. They are joined by Matthew Hawksley as Fyedka, Harriet Bunton as Hodel, Dermot Canavan as Lazar Wolf, Stewart Clarke as Perchik, Nicola Brown as Chava, Joshua Gannon as Motel, Anita Dobson as Yente the Matchmaker and Molly Osborne as Tzeitel.

Trevor Nunn's Broadway revival enjoyed a sold-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory from November 2018 to March 2019. The Times pronounced the cast "pitch perfect", The Telegraph called the production an “exuberant revival’ and the Guardian dubbed it “note-perfect”.

Original, Tony Award-winning choreography comes from Jerome Robbins. Set design is by Robert Jones, Costume design is by Jonathan Lipman and hair and make up design come courtesy of Richard Mawbey. Further choreography is by Matt Cole, Lighting design comes from Tim Lutkin and sound design is by Gregory Clarke. Musical supervision and direction are the remit of Paul Bogaev, while orchestrations are courtesy of Jason Carr.

Trevor Nunn's resume includes the title of Artistic Director at the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and of Theatre Royal Haymarket. He counts several prestigious awards to his name, including an Olivier for Best Director, a Tony for Best Direction of a Play and a Tony for Best Direction of a Musical.

Find out if this really is the Miracle of Miracles that the critics believe it to be. Catch Fiddler on the Roof at the West End’s Playhouse theatre from 21 March until 3 November 2019.

This is a wonderful revival of a Broadway classic. The set design is excellent and the singing/dancing are wonderful. At just under 3 hours long, the time flies by as you are completely engrossed in the musical. You feel a wrath of emotions from joy to sorrow and you can’t help but shed a tear at the end. It’s great to see this classic back on the West End stage!

The show was great, loved the intimate setting where some of the audience members were even sat on the stage as part of the background.
