Fiddler on the Roof Singalong Show and Tell


Reserve your seat HERE, starting August 30. ( ALL RESERVATIONS FOR THIS PROGRAM HAVE BEEN CLAIMED (All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so seats may become available at that time.  A stand by line will form outside the cafe door one hour before the program.) 

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 available 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 impaired people may enter via 111 Amsterdam Ave.
