Fiddler on the Roof is a long-running Broadway musical, based on the Jewish Tevye stories of Sholem Aleichem, first debuting in 1964 and running through 1972. Many revivals have been staged since, the most recent occurring in 2004. It has been adapted into an acclaimed 1971 film. The plot focuses on the trials and tribulations of Tevye the milkman, his many daughters, and the entire village of Anatevka.

References

  • In a "Monsterpiece Theater" version of Fiddler on the Roof, a farmer and his daughters sing about "Addition," a parody of the play's opening song, "Tradition".
  • In the Bear in the Big Blue House special "A Berry Bear Christmas," Doc Hogg jokes about hearing a Great Dane perform Fiddler on the Woof. Several moments later, Bear describes what a tradition is, with the word drawn on the screen. He recites it with a flair reminiscent of the song of the same name from Fiddler on the Roof.

Connections

Many actors who have been involved in Muppet/Henson productions also appeared in versions of Fiddler.
