Sioux Falls, SD — The Washington Pavilion is proud to present the Sioux Falls engagement of the Tony Award®-nominated Broadway revival of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF in the Mary W. Sommervold Hall February 4–6, 2022.
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is the heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, and life, love and laughter. This classic musical is rich with Broadway hits, including “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were a Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” and “Tradition.”
“We are thrilled to bring this revival to Sioux Falls,” says Regina Ruhberg, Director of Performances and Events for Washington Pavilion Management, Inc. “It has everything that made it a classic in the first place, but with an incredibly creative and vibrant approach to the storytelling. This important piece of musical theatre history is brought to brilliant new life in this production.”
The original Broadway production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, which opened in 1964, was the first musical in history to surpass 3,000 performances. The show won the 1965 Tony Award for Best Musical in addition to eight other Tony Awards that year. This acclaimed revival proudly introduces a new generation to the iconic musical adored across the globe.
A beloved theatrical classic from Tony Award-winner Joseph Stein and Pulitzer Prize-winners Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is directed by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher (SOUTH PACIFIC, THE KING AND I); choreographed by the acclaimed Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter; inspired by the original choreography of Jerome Robbins; and has musical direction by Ted Sperling.
