WINNER of nine Tony awards and one of the longest running shows ever to have played on Broadway, the exhilarating and much loved musical Fiddler on the Roof comes to Liverpool later this month starring Liverpool's own Joe McGann.
Best known for his role as Charlie Burrows in ITV sitcom The Upper Hand, Joe plays the lead role of Jewish dairyman Tevye, who dreams of riches, respect and a quiet family life.
In a Jewish village in Czarist Russia,Tevye is doing his best to preserve tradition in the face of a changing world, but when his daughters refuse the matchmaker’s advice and marry for love, Tevye must choose between their happiness and those beloved traditions.
Fiddler on the Roof is blessed with a rousing score full of memorable melodies, which, bound by a moving and compelling storyline, heartwarming humour and colourful characters, Jerome Robbins’ dramatic original choreography, wonderfully evocative sets and costumes and sheer joie de vivre, make this the musical to take to your hearts.
Songs include Tradition, Matchmaker Matchmaker, Sunrise Sunset and If I Were a Rich Man. In addition to his TV credits, Joe McGann recently starred as Nathan Detroit in the UK tour of Guys & Dolls and most recently as one of the three Magi in the BBC’s Liverpool Nativity, a modern musical version of the Christmas story.
The show plays at the Liverpool Empire from April 22-April 26, and you can get tickets here.
