The story of Broadway sensation, Fiddler on the Roof and its phenomenal impact around the world.

Join Sheldon Harnick, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Joel Grey and many others, as director Max Lewkowicz chronicles the play’s backstory, from its 1960s New York roots, when "tradition" was on the wane and civil rights were evolving. Most revealing is the story of the play’s global impact, where audiences all over the world for the last half-century have claimed Tevye’s story as their own, from suburban middle schools in Nebraska to grand state theatres in Japan. Also featuring interviews with Harold Prince, Jerry Bock, Chaim Topol, Harvey Fierstein, Fran Lebowitz, Calvin Trillin, and Nathan Englander, as well as archival footage of original director-choreographer Jerome Robbins and star Zero Mostel.
