Time to take a look at the principal company chosen for Trevor Nunn’s major revival of Fiddler on the Roof as Judy Kuhn, Stewart Clarke, Matt Corner and Louise Gold join the previously announced Andy Nyman as Tevye. The production opens on 5 December 2018, so will it be on your Christmas wish list?
Judy Kuhn plays Golde, with Harriet Bunton (Hodel), Dermot Canavan (Lazar Wolf), Stewart Clarke (Perchik), Matt Corner (Fyedka), Joshua Gannon (Motel), Louise Gold (Yente), Kirsty MacLaren (Chava) and Molly Osborne (Tzeitel).
The production opens on 5 December 2018, with previews from 23 November, and runs until 9 March 2019. Fiddler on the Roof sees Trevor Nunn renew his collaboration with the Menier – he previously directed Lettice and Lovage, Love in Idleness (also West End), A Little Night Music (also West End and Broadway) and Aspects of Love for the company.
Fiddler on the Roof has music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and a book by Joseph Stein. Also in the creative team are choreographer Matt Cole, set designer Robert Jones, costume designer Jonathan Lipman, hair and make-up designer Richard Mawbey, lighting designer Tim Lutkin, sound designer Gregory Clarke, musical supervisor and director Paul Bogaev and orchestrator Jason Carr.
