Fiddler on the Roof
The Tony-winning Fiddler on the Roof transports viewers back to early 20th-century Russia, presenting the travails of the Jewish inhabitants of the town of Anatevka as they struggle with love, religious persecution, and weak water pressure in their homes. As the world changes around him, family patriarch and dairyman Tevye implores his five daughters to hold onto their traditions in spite of the burgeoning antisemitism rumbling on the horizon.
Despite the serious subject matter, the play is hardly a gloomy affair. For one thing, there's plenty of humor to be had in Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick's score, which includes indelible songs such as "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man," and "Matchmaker." Encore's production conveys the warmth of the characters and story with the help of traditional costumes and a simple set that evokes folk-art paintings.
Greater Lowell Music Theatre
What happens when a former Rockette, a playwright, and a musical producer join forces? If they're Phyllis George, Jack Neary, and Leon Grande, they found the Greater Lowell Music Theatre. The trio—who previously choreographed and directed acclaimed high school musicals together—founded the theater in 2012 to celebrate the great American musical. Since then, they've applied their talents and tap shoes to beloved shows including The Music Man and Guys and Dolls.
