Other Information James N. Healy decided to bring Fiddler on the Roof to Cork after seeing the original West End production at Her Majesty's Theatre in London in 1967. Cork's Gilbert and Sullivan group attempted to recreate the setting of the London production and called on the services of guest choreographer from the West End, Larry Oaks. Fiddler on the Roof played at Cork Opera House for three weeks from 12 to 31 March.
