DIRECTORS’ NOTE

 

In 1967, Joseph Stein, who wrote the book for Fiddler on the Roof, traveled to Tokyo to observe rehearsals for the first non-English production of his beloved show.  As they watched, the Japanese producer turned to Stein and asked, “Do they understand this show in  America?” Stein, perplexed, said of course; they’d written it for an American audience. “Why do you ask?” he wondered aloud. The producer replied, “Because it’s so Japanese.”

 

This is a story about a family.  A Jewish family, in a Jewish settlement, on the eve of the Russian Revolution.  And while many aspects of this story feel specific to a time, to a place, to a people, it is also a universal story. It is a story that anyone, of any background, can relate to. It asks questions that echo through all of us: 

 

How do I honor my past while forging my future? 

Which traditions should I uphold, and which should I reject? 

Does progress always necessitate loss? 

What does it mean to love someone?

 

You know. Easy questions.

 

Fiddler doesn’t presume to answer these questions, but it asks them, and in its asking, we find kinship. We find we are not alone in our wondering. We are all asking, and striving, and failing, and searching for home. 

 

We hope you find a little home here today, watching these incredible kids perform this incredible work. Thank you.
