If I Were A Rich Man
There is no limit to the talents of Australian musical superstar Anthony Warlow. Having just finished up the starring role of New York billionaire Daddy Warbucks in the Broadway revival of Annie, he will be returning to the Australian stage leading Fiddler on the Roof the story of Tevye who wishes he was a rich man!
Fiddler on the Roof seems to be a rather popular musical selection at the moment. There is a revival of this classic musical headed towards the Broadway stage and it was announced today that Australia will get a brand new production of Fiddler on the Roof opening in Melbourne from December 29th for six weeks before heading north to Sydney for another six week season.
Anthony Warlow will be returning to his Australian roots to helm this new production having spent the last few years wowing New York audiences as Daddy Warbucks in the revival of Annie and taking over the role of Captain Hook from Kelsey Grammar in Finding Neverland.
“It has been a quiet passion of mine to one day play the role of Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this coveted role to life in a sensational new production,” said Anthony.
“I have always been moved by the ability of this touching story of father/ daughter relationships and the timeless traditions that define faith and family to carry audiences from laughter to tears in a matter of moments. I look forward to Australian audiences joining me in revisiting this iconic musical.”
A classic and well-known musical with one of Australia’s favourite leading men, this is the perfect musical for the Australian scene and should resonate strongly with our audiences. The further casting for this acclaimed show will be announced soon.
