Now through Sunday – ‘Fiddler on the Roof’
Here’s the thing about tradition: it’s timeless. Originally scheduled for 2020, the COVID-19-delayed, Tony-winning classic finally arrives in RVA without skipping a beat. A poor milkman seeks out husbands for his five wives in a Russian village — all eons before the advent of dating apps, wedding dress reality shows, and drive-thru chapel bulk discounts. (Note: As of April 2022, Broadway in Richmond no longer requires proof of vaccine or a negative COVID-19 test for entry.) Times vary. Altria Theater, 6 N. Laurel St. $28.50-$98.50. https://www.etix.com/ or 804-592-3368

The 30th Spring Market is your golden opportunity to escape the big box gauntlet and find just right gifts, from medium-rare cookbooks and glitzy jewelry to ripe garden accessories and designer duds. Hours vary. 600 E. Laburnum Ave. $8-$14. thebizarrebazaar.com or (804) 673-7015

Saturday & Sunday – Richmond Symphony: Haydn’s ‘Creation’
