Sheldon Harnick, the Man Who Put the Heart into "Fiddler on the Roof": A Multi-Media Portrait
Lyricist Sheldon Harnick teamed with composer Jerry Bock to write some of the most popular songs on Broadway. Harnick penned the lyrics for the longest running musical of the 1960s, "Fiddler on the Roof," the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical "Fiorello," the cult classic "She Loves Me," and the musical based on the influential family of Jewish financiers, "The Rothschilds."

Theater educator and cabaret producer Bonnie Weiss will explore Harnick's life and work in a multi-media presentation sponsored by the 29th Jewish Music Festival. The presentation will include video of performances by Zero Mostel and Topol, both of whom played Tevye in "Fiddler." Weiss also will show footage of Harnick singing a comic song he wrote for Lazar Wolf, the butcher, that was cut from "Fiddler," plus rarely seen performances of Harnick's early satirical numbers, "The Boston Beguine" and "Garbage."

The presentation is part of a series of "Fiddler at 50" celebratory lectures, sing-alongs and concerts sponsored by a consortium of Bay Area Jewish and educational organizations.
