When “Fiddler on the Roof” opened on Broadway in 1964, it explored themes of tradition, religion, and anti-Semitism against a modern backdrop of radical social change that addressed gender roles, sexuality, and race. Rare archival footage and interviews with musical luminaries explore the legacy of this long-running, award-winning musical.
“Max Lewkowicz’s documentary emerges as essential viewing by exposing the behind-the-scenes drama and on-stage magic of ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’ a musical and cultural landmark whose influence spans nations, races, religions and generations.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
