This is suddenly a golden age for the forever-classics of musical theatre, from London where Sondheim's Company and Follies have both had spellbinding reinventions, to Broadway where there are currently revelatory revivals of My Fair Lady, Oklahoma! and Kiss Me, Kate.

Fiddler on the Roof Information
Fiddler on the Roof has transferred to the West End's Playhouse Theatre following its revival at the Menier Chocolate Factory, with director Trevor Nunn giving Joseph Stein, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick's classic musical a new lease of life. The production opened in the West End to the Playhouse Theatre on 27th March 2019, after tickets for Fiddler on the Roof at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London sold out.
Set in Russia at the turn of the 1905 Revolution, Fiddler on the Roof centres around Tevye, a Jewish man who works hard to ensure that he raises his five daughters with traditional Jewish customs. When the village matchmaker brings news that a wealthy butcher wants to marry their eldest child Tzeitel, it's clear that pairing people together isn't what Tzeitel wants. Tzeitel wants to marry her childhood friend, Motel the tailor. Eventually, Tzeitel and Motel marry each other, with local Jews joining in with the ceremony, but they are not able to celebrate for too long, with Russians wreaking havoc in their community.
Andy Nyman stars in the London production as Tevye. Nyman's previous work on stage includes productions of Abigail's Party, Assassins and Hangmen. as well as writing the play Ghost Stories, which went on to play the West End and was adapted into a film. Nyman is also known for his work with Derren Brown, having collaborated with the illusionist on TV shows and stage productions.
Four-time Tony Award nominee Judy Kuhn played Golde in the London production, having previously played the part in the Broadway revival in November 2016. Her previous stage work includes playing Fanny Brice in Funny Girl, Helen Bechdel in the Broadway production of Fun Home, and voicing the titular character in the Disney film Pocahontas.
