Tevye

Maurice Schwartz’s adaptation of the classic Sholem Aleichem play centers on dairyman Tevye’s daughter, who falls in love with the son of a Ukrainian peasant. Her courtship and marriage pit Tevye’s love for his daughter against his deep-seated faith and loyalty to tradition. Tension builds between parental authority and paternal love, tradition, and change, and between peaceful daily life and counterrevolutionary upheaval. Schwartz, a beloved Yiddish theater and stage actor, brings to life a microcosm of the larger world of Russian Jewry in the early 1900s.
