This documentary takes an engaging look at one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on the Roof. The original production, rooted in early-1960s New York and its reinventing of “traditions,” is only the beginning. Through interviews with scholars and Broadway luminaries such as Stephen Sondheim, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Michigan’s own Alex Silber, the film explores the continuing relevance of Fiddler.
