Bartlett Sher, who is directing the “Fiddler on the Roof” revival now on Broadway, is a master of interpreting classics, having reworked “South Pacific,” which earned him a Tony Award in 2008, and Clifford Odets’ boxing drama “Golden Boy.” For his “Fiddler” interpretation, he has tapped the Israeli-born, London-based modern dance choreographer Hofesh Shechter to tweak Jerome Robbins’ original choreography. The Robbins Estate has granted more freedom to this revival than to most other productions of the musical, offering Shechter new creative opportunities within Robbins’ choreography.  

“I’m looking at the idea of how culture and tradition survive time,” says Hofesh Shechter. Jake Walters
