Tell Your Friends, The New Fiddler on the Roof Cast Recor...

The wonderful new revival of Fiddler on the Roof (and its perfect cast) has been preserved as a cast recording thanks to BroadwayRecords. It’s available now and it’s one of those must-own albums for true theatre fans. Below, BroadwayBox reacts in animated GIF as we give this Fiddler a first listen.

1. Tradition (Full Company)

Fiddler on the Roof- 1

It’s impossible not to sing along/do every line of dialogue #WhenYouveDoneFiddlerinHighSchool

2. Matchmaker (Alexandra Silber, Samantha Massell & Melanie Moore)

Fiddler on the Roof- Matchmaker

DAMN! These three sound gorgeous together. I don’t think I’ve ever liked the Tzeitel part of this song as much as in this recording—slay Silber!

3. If I Were a Rich Man (Danny Burstein)

Fiddler on the Roof- Rich Man

4. Sabbath Prayer (Danny Burstein, Jessica Hecht & Company)

Fiddler on the Roof- Sabbath Prayer

Randomly, my favorite song in the show and impossible not to lose yourself in.

5. To Life (Danny Burstein, Adam Dannheisser, Aaron Young & Male Ensemble)

Fiddler on the Roof- to Life

6. Tevye’s Monologue (Danny Burstein)

Fiddler on the Roof- Tevye's Monologue

So glad this recording includes Tevye’s “they gave each other a pledge” moment. Perfection.

7. Miracle of Miracles (Adam Kantor)

Fiddler on the Roof- Adam Kantor

That awkward moment you realize you’re giving a mid-office standing ovation…alone…with headphone on.

8. Tevye's Dream (Danny Burstein, Jessica Hecht, Lori Wilner, Jessica Vosk & Company)

Fiddler on the Roof- The dream

Everything about this recording is the pinnacle of Fiddler albums. You’d be hard pressed to find a better “Dream”.

9. Wedding Procession (Orchestra)

Fiddler on the Roof- Wedding

Ok, let’s do this Fiddler.

10. Sunrise, Sunset (Full Company)

Fiddler on the Roof- Sunrise Sunset

Gorgeous. Already added it to about five playlists.

11. Wedding Dance (Orchestra)

Fiddler on the Roof- Wedding Dance

Just try to stand still—I dare you.

12. Now I Have Everything (Ben Rappaport & Samantha Massell)

Fiddler on the Roof- 12

13. Do You Love Me? (Danny Burstein & Jessica Hecht)

Fiddler on the Roof- Do You LOve Me

When you get actors like Burstein and Hecht performing an acting-intensive song like this, the result is so moving and so true—like the rest of this production. There’s no way you’re not smiling by the end.

14. The Rumor (Alix Korey & Company)

Fiddler on the Roof- the rumor

Oh, it feels good to laugh again.

15. Far From the Home I Love (Samantha Massell)

Fiddler on the Roof- Far from the home i love

No, you're crying at your desk. Whatever... #DemVocalsDoe

16. Chavaleh/Tevye’s Denial (Danny Burstein)

Fiddler on the Roof- Chavaleh

I know you know but Danny Burstein is a treasure—and I’m an emotional wreck after that one-two punch. #IHonestlyCant

17. Anatevka (Full Company)

Fiddler on the Roof- anetevka

18. Leave Anatevka (Orchestra)

Fiddler on the Roof- anetevka

That cast recording was marvelous. Emotional, well-sung, everything a theatre fan wants from Fiddler.

19. Excerpts from Fiddler on the Roof Variations & Cadenza (Itzhak Perlman)

Fiddler on the Roof- Itzhak Perlman

20. Dear Sweet Sewing Machine (Adam Kantor & Alexandra Silber)

Fiddler on the Roof- Sweet Sewing Machine

Love this cut song. What a nice way to take us out of the album.

See this remarkable bunch live in Fiddler on the Roof at the Broadway Theatre.
