The Creation of Fiddler On The Roof

The Creation of
“Fiddler on the Roof”
with host Charles Troy

The stories of Yiddish writer Sholom Aleichem seemed an unlikely subject for a musical, and certainly of limited appeal. We'll see how genius director-choreographer Jerome Robbins guided his creative team to find universality in the material, and how they made a "Jewish musical" that struck a responsive chord in virtually every country in the world.

The presentation runs approximately 90 minutes and will be followed by a 30-minute interview with cast members Austin Pendleton and Joanna Merlin, the original Motel and Tzeitel, who share delightful stories of how they got their parts, working with Jerome Robbins, and the show's legendary out-of-town troubles before the Broadway triumph.

Available for viewing on Broadway On Demand on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 7:00PM. Reservations are required.
