If I Were a Rich Man (Fiddler on the Roof)

by Matthew Rousu

Tevye discusses what he would do if he were a rich man. Note that this musical is set in the year 1905. Many people today would find it staggering to think about what it meant to be rich in 1905. The average poor person in America today has an income that is considerably higher than Tevye’s, and may even be wealthier than the lifestyle Tevye imagines.
