A love letter to “Fiddler on the Roof,” this captivating homage helps explain why the quintessentially Jewish musical about shtetl life in Czarist Russia—replete with pogroms and matchmakers—remains so universally understood and adored. The unlikeliest of musicals, "Fiddler" has a fascinating genesis story, and proved that the Jewish creators’ theme—the tension between modernity and tradition—transcended the specifics of time and place so unique to the Jewish experience.

“What is it that makes it speak in so many languages, and everybody thinks it’s about them?” – Joel Grey, director of the Yiddish revival currently playing in New York
