"Everyone will feel like a richer man, woman or child after seeing this extraordinary production. Raise your hands to the heavens to life, to love, to family and to remembering that we are all the same under the skin. Trevor Nunn's sublime Mernier Chocolate Factory production transfers to the West End but loses none of its heart and humanity. In fact, the intimate staging places the audience right inside the action. When the villagers trudge wearily through the theatre in that final heartbreaking scene, lights dimming and snow falling, the entire theatre held its breath for the sheer beauty and pain of the moment and the thrill of seeing something so utterly perfect."
"But if that strong visual image - augmented by the stunning chiaroscuro lighting of Tim Lutkin, the peasant costumes of Jonathan Lipman and the dazzling folk choreography of Matt Cole - is definitive, so are the fully-inhabited performances of a brilliant ensemble cast that turn this portrait of a community under existential threat into a compassionate joy. Andy Nyman leads as a warm, spellbinding Tevye, with Judy Kuhn and Louise Gold in strong support as his wife Golde"
"This new take on the Jerry Bock/Sheldon Harnick classic, transferring from the Menier Chocolate Factory, is proof that the now 79-year-old Nunn still has that magic musical touch, as his production is sensitive, confident, heartfelt and boisterous by turn, and equally convincing in every mood."
