Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles - in cooperation with Laemmle Theatres
EXCLUSIVE Q&A with expert, Barbara Isenberg, author of bestseller "Tradition!" and Stephen Sass, President of the Jewish Historical Society of Southern CA

A documentary by Max Lewkowicz
USA/2019/92 minutes

The musical's opening played on a lamenting fiddle, echoes a long-lost Yiddish world. The songs,"If I Were a Rich Man", "Sunrise, Sunset", "Tradition!" are as much a part of our lives as a nursery rhyme. The shtetl of Anatevka has come to stand in for every homeland left behind, and Tevye the milkman for every father of a restless new generation of children. That's the power of the musical, "Fiddler on the Roof," a theatrical phenomenon and the subject of this new documentary. It reveals the creative origins in early 1960s New York, when "tradition" was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving.

The show had a long-lasting cultural impact and not only held the record as the longest-running musical on Broadway, but also became, for many, the very definition of the Eastern European Jewish experience. It was the product of a team of Jewish American musical artists: composer Jerry Bock and lyricist Sheldon Harnick ("Fiorello!") who teamed up with director/choreographer Jerome Robbins ("West Side Story") to breathe energy into Sholom Aleichem's turn-of-the-century tales of Russian Jewish life. The documentary is filled with intimate and insightful interviews with its creators, performance clips from the iconic motion picture and interviews with director, Norman Jewison and Chaim Topol, and various productions including Zero Mostel, Danny Burstein, and the current Yiddish-language adaptation that is taking New York by storm.  Additional commentary is from admirers like Stephen Sondheim, Itzhak Perlman and Lin-Manuel Miranda. It also explores a variety of international productions, detailing how many cultures see themselves in the residents of Anatevka and how audiences world-wide claim the story as their own.

In cooperation with Laemmle Theatres, Jewish Journal and Jewish Historical Society of Southern CA
