Based on Sholom Aleichem’s beloved characters, immortalized in Fiddler in the Roof, Tevye In New York takes up where the original stories left off. Follow Tevye as he and his daughters make their way across the Atlantic Ocean, through Ellis Island, past “the big green lady”, and into the gritty melting pot of 1914’s Lower East Side. Hear how family ties are strained over woman’s rights, and the terrible Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. Enjoy Tevye’s humorous take on high tech advances like automobiles, electricity and this most curious contraption of all, the telephone! Watch as Tevye grows from a humble street merchant to the proud owner of a fancy shmancy grocery store on Delancey Street! In the hands of master storyteller Tom Dugan, Tevye In New York is a tale filled with laughter, heartbreak, and joy, as Tevye the irrepressible dairyman tries to balance tradition with what it means to be an American Jew.
