A true masterpiece of musical theatre, this underrated show by Sheldon Harnick, Jerry Bock, and Joseph Stein has been revived dozens of times on Broadway, the West End, and on tour since its original 1964 opening. A charming and funny piece about a Jewish community in 1905 Russia, it explores the importance of tradition, adaptation, and family in a changing world. It produced the beloved songs “Sunrise, Sunset”, often played at weddings, and “If I Were a Rich Man”, as well as the touching “Miracle of Miracles” and raucous “To Life”. Honestly, every song in this show is a winner. Its timeless themes have kept it relevant for over fifty years—this show is of true quality.
