Performances of the award-winning Broadway musical take place at the Shelton nonprofit cultural venue at 54 Grove St., in the former Lafayette School complex.

The local production is being directed by Center Stage Theatre founders, the husband-and-wife team of Gary and Francesca Scarpa.

The play tells the story of a poor Jewish dairyman in Russia in the early 1900s who struggles with changing times and the dissolution of traditions.
