The sister of Broadway choreographer Jerome Robbins suffered a heart attack Thursday while attending the opening night of “Fiddler on the Roof’s” latest Broadway revival. She was later pronounced dead.

Sonia Cullinen, 91, was stricken before the curtain went up at the Minskoff Theatre for a new production of the musical that Robbins had originally directed and choreographed, said Michael Hartman, a show spokesman. She was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
