That’s perhaps the best way to describe the Fredericksburg Theater Company’s upcoming three-week run of the Broadway musical “Fiddler on the Roof,” which opens this Friday.
“[‘Fiddler’] sold out faster than ‘Les Misérables,” said Steve Reily, FTC’s executive director. “It’s the fastest show to sell out at FTC. Our patrons told us they missed ‘Les Mis’ or had a hard time getting tickets and wanted to make sure they had tickets for this.”
Reily added that musicals tend to be popular at the theater.
“Fiddler” will run Fridays through Sundays, Feb. 20-March 8. Show times will be Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.
The two-act musical will be performed at the Steve W. Shepherd Theater, at 1668 U.S. Highway 87 South.
This production stars FTC founder Jeryl Hoover as Tevye.
Kerry Goff, director of “Fiddler,” described it as “refreshing” to hear the show has been sold out.
