Now run by Dick and Betty's son Rick and his wife Jane, the Fireside tradition of excellence continues with 5-6 professional productions each year, fine dining and offers its guests a place to create cherished memories. The Fireside's motto: People will come to a place they have been invited and will return to a place where they have been made to feel welcome.

This classic show held the title as Broadway’s longest running musical for over twenty years, winning nine Tony Awards including Best Musical. Tens of millions of people worldwide have fallen in love with Tevye, the long suffering dairyman who struggles to find a balance between his traditions and his family. It is a heart-warming story featuring one of Broadway’s most beautiful musical scores. "Fiddler on the Roof" opened on Broadway the same year that The Fireside first opened its doors and to celebrate this dual anniversary, back by popular demand, Artistic Director Ed Flesch will return to the leading role with which he has long been associated. You won’t want to miss this Fireside “Tradition!”
