Rothschild & Sons

Rothschild & Sons
A story of a family who defied the odds and changed history.

With a score by Tony Award winners Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock (Fiddler on the Roof, She Loves Me), Rothschild & Sons tells the tale of the Rothschild family, who built a business empire from nothing in the face of adversity and bigotry. But above all, Rothschild & Sons is a one-act epic about faith, persistance, and how family gives the greatest wealth of all. 

Shrewd, charismatic, resourceful and ambitious, Mayer Rothschild and his five sons struggle to overcome the prejudice of late-eighteenth-century European society, as they build a family banking business that takes them from the Jewish ghetto to the courts of the rich and powerful. On the way, they come to dominate European finance, help fund Napoleon's defeat and secure a Declaration of Rights for their people from the Crowned Heads of State. It is truly Europe's most famous rags-to-riches story.

Powerful and informative in nature, Rothschild & Sons, much like Fiddler on the Roof, is an impactful, important, and must-see piece for all audiences. Requiring most actors to play multiple roles, it creates ample opportunities to feature an array of talented actor-singers who will love sinking their teeth into the ambitious and bold libretto/score.
