No other musical has so successfully woven music, dance, poignancy, and laughter into such a truly unforgettable show. As Tevye, a poor dairyman tries to hold onto his religion, his Russian-Jewish traditions, and his five daughters while eluding the difficult future that looms ever nearer, he learns that life is "as shaky as a fiddler on the roof." Join Maurer Productions OnStage to dream with "Matchmaker, Matchmaker;" laugh out loud with "If I Were a Rich Man," and tear up with "Sunrise, Sunset" and "Anatevka." This is a story that will last forever in your heart. Let's celebrate life together. L'Chaim!
