(For assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts' Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where out volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email.

In the fifty years since Fiddler on the Roof first opened on Broadway, the shtetl of Anatevka has come to life on stages around the world. The words of “Tradition” and “Matchmaker” have been translated into a dozen languages, and families from many cultural backgrounds have sympathized with the story of Tevye, Golde, and their daughters. Lend your voice to this anniversary celebration and sing along with live performances of your favorite Fiddler songs. Discover the show’s fascinating history in a display of archival material from the Library’s collections. Sheldon Harnick, Fiddler’s lyricist, will be our guest of honor.
'Wichcraft pastries and coffee will be avilable for purchase.
This program takes place in the Library for the Performing Arts' Cafe, on the first floor, plaza level. Enter via the Cafe entrance by ascending the stairs at the corner of Amsterdam Ave. and West 65th St. Mobility imparied people may enter via 111 Amsterdam Ave.
