The American premiere of the Yiddish-language adaptation of Fiddler on the Roof is set to begin performances at the Edmond J. Safra Theatre at the Museum of Jewish Heritage July 4. The Off-Broadway staging from National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene will be presented in Yiddish with English and Russian supertitles.

Directed by Oscar and Tony winner Joel Grey, the production will mark the first time the Yiddish version of the musical has been staged since its world premiere in Israel more than 50 years ago.

Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish is based on the Tevye the Dairyman vignettes by Sholem Aleichem and is translated by Shraga Friedman.

Fiddler on The Roof has music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein. Harnick and producer/director Harold Prince have been consulting with NYTF on the production.
