How many Broadway musical writing legends have you met? Add another to your list this month. Join #StageFaves founder Terri Paddock for an exclusive post-show Q&A with Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof, She Loves Me) and the company for the European premiere of his show ROTHSCHILD & SONS at the Park Theatre on 30 January 2018...
A family willing to risk everything.
ROTHSCHILD & SONS is the remarkable story of how a father, mother and their sons changed the world.
This uplifting and universal tale affirming human dignity springs from the hearts and minds of Broadway songwriters Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock and Tony-nominated writer Sherman Yellen. Inspired by the book The Rothschilds by Frederic Morton, this re-imagined musical about a family that risks everything includes several never-before-heard songs in its thrilling UK premiere.
The stellar cast of Broadway and West End actors is led by Tony nominee Robert Cuccioli as Mayer and Glory Crampton as Gutele, reprising their roles from the New York run, and Gary Trainor (School of Rock, Beautiful in the West End) as Nathan Rothschild. The production is directed by Jeffrey B Moss.
ROTHSCHILD & SONS, first seen at New York’s York Theatre in 2015, is a one-act reimagining of Harnick and Bock’s nine-time Tony-nominated 1970 musical The Rothschilds. One of Broadway’s most successful songwriting partnerships, Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock (who died in 2010) had numerous other hits, including Fiorello! (1959), She Loves Me (1963) and their best-known blockbuster, Fiddler on the Roof (1964). In addition to three earlier Tonys for Fiorello! and Fiddler on the Roof, Harnick was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2016 Tony Awards.
For the Q&A on Tuesday 30 January 2018, Terri will be joined by Sheldon Harnick and members of ROTHSCHILD & SONS company.
