    The original production won ten Tony Awards, including a special Tony for becoming the longest-running Broadway musical of all time—and now you can be there when the sun rises on this new production, starring Tony nominees Danny Burstein and Jessica Hecht with stunning movement and dance from acclaimed Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter, based on the original staging by Jerome Robbins. A wonderful cast and a lavish orchestra tell this heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, and the timeless traditions that define faith and family.
