It's a sad reality that at virtually any point in history, somewhere on the planet, persecuted peoples are being driven from their homelands as they seek fundamental dignity for themselves and better lives for their children. That eternal theme of forced emigration acquires powerful cumulative pathos in Bartlett Sher's beautiful revival of Fiddler on the Roof, led by a performance of aching humanity from Danny Burstein as the dairyman Tevye. The 1964 musical's rousing prologue stresses the value of "Tradition," and this staging honors that imperative while at the same time providing a robust connective thread between the story and our world a century later.

-----Hollywood Reporter
The superb new production, which opened on Sunday at the Broadway Theater, certainly honors the show’s ebullience of spirit, as embodied in the central character of the Jewish milkman Tevye, living in a Russian shtetl in the early 20th century, eternally wagging his tongue, shaking his fist and cracking wise at an indifferent God. But as directed by Bartlett Sher with his customary sensitivity (“The King and I,” “South Pacific”), this multihued staging moves to a heart-stopping conclusion. It’s impossible to watch the people of Tevye’s town, Anatevka, marching toward their unknown destinies in the shadow of a threatened pogrom without thinking of the thousands of families fleeing violence in the Middle East and elsewhere today.

------New York Times
The production is elegantly designed, warmly acted, beautifully played and sung — no surprise since it comes from Bartlett Sher, the man behind the hit revivals of “The King and I” and “South Pacific.” This is a guy who understands the power of tradition, but also the need for sensitive updates here and there. The biggest is new choreography by Israel-born, UK-based Hofesh Shechter, which smoothly melds into the show’s universe. Rest assured, though, that Jerome Robbins’ iconic bottle dance is still there and is still amazing.
