OPENS DECEMBER 8 Broadway star Harvey Fierstein offers a stellar performance in the lead role of iconic Tony Award–winning musical Fiddler On The Roof. A philosophical Jewish milkman from the pre-Revolutionary Russian village of Anatevka, Fierstein’s Tevye opines about tradition versus new ways of life and how they conflict. This heartwarming production, with such poignant songs as “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “Sunrise, Sunset” and “If I Were a Rich Man,” depicts that time and place in history. Themes like the oppression of minorities ensure the story is as relevant now as ever. Canon Theatre, Tuesday to Saturday 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 1:30 p.m., $60 to $225; call 416-872-1212 or click here to purchase tickets.
