Hofstra University’s Department of Drama and Dance presents Fiddler on the Roof from Oct.23–Nov. 1 at the John Cranford Adams Playhouse, South Campus, Hempstead Turnpike in Hempstead.
A great classic musical for over 50 years, Sholom Aleichim’s iconic tale of Tevye and his daughters set in early 20th century Russia bursts onto the stage accompanied by its much beloved and beautiful score. This joyful survival story resonates poignantly with contemporary struggles to balance shifting identities and gender roles with long-held family and community traditions. Book by Joseph Stein; music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick; directed by Cindy Rosenthal.
