What makes the quintessentially Jewish musical Fiddler on the Roof speak to everyone?

With interviews from Joel Grey and Lin-Manuel Miranda as well as Stephen Sondheim, Itzhak Perlman, Fran Lebowitz, and Harvey Fierstein, this documentary explores Fiddler’s history and development in early 1960s New York, as well as its broader impact on the musical theater genre in America.

Find out how the original play is viewed through the lens of social upheaval and change in mid-twentieth century America and how it remains relevant today, as audiences of many cultures all over the world see themselves in the residents of Anatevka.
