Trivia & History

On opening night (Sept. 22, 1964), the ensemble members were not listed with specific characters but simply as "Villagers." By December 1965, every member of the cast was listed by a character name (with an occupation included for all the male Jewish characters but not for the women or the Russian men). We have included the character names based on what is in a December 1965 playbill, with a little help from Richard Altman's book The Making of a Musical: Fiddler on the Roof, to confirm that Sandra Kazan, who had already left the cast by December 1965, had been given the character name Fredel. 

The role played by Robert Currie (aka Bob Currie), Ilyitch, seems to have been eliminated from the production when he departed the show by some time in January 1965.
