55 years after it opened on Broadway, Fiddler on the Roof, based on Sholem Aleichem’s stories, still makes people laugh, cry, dance and sing – every day and the world over, from Spain to Thailand. Join Joel Grey, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Chaim Topol, Stephen Sondheim, Harvey Fierstein, Itzhak Perlman and Fran Lebowitz, to name just a few, as they tell the fascinating story of the show and film and explain the reasons for their ongoing and universal success. A joyous celebration of a true Jewish classic.
