One of Broadway’s most heart-warming musicals, “Fiddler on the Roof,” opened New Year’s Eve at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre in Fort Myers where it will play through Feb. 16.
The story is about the family of Teyve, his five daughters, the local Yenta, or matchmaker, and the men she finds for Teyve’s daughters. Teyve is a traditional man. Three of his daughters are less so. They live in a Jewish community in Tsarist Russia where all the Jews are in danger of being evicted from their land. Through all the changes, Teyve tries to maintain his traditional religious beliefs. One of the many memorable songs in the show, “Tradition,” concerns that aspect of the story which is based on stories of Sholem Aleichem.
