For the first time, intimate interviews with the show's creators reveal
how he tremendous success and worldwide impact of Fiddler and its subsequent film adaptation is most appropriately viewed through the
lens of the social upheaval and change in mid-20thcentury America.
Yet, as the film shows,the true wonder of wonders and miracle of
Fiddler is that audiences world-wide and for the last half century
claim the story as their own.
The documentary explores a variety of international productions of the
show, detailing how individuals of many cultures see themselves in the residents of Anatevka. The film includes major worldwide productions
from Canada, The United Kingdom, the Netherlands, as well as the last Broadway production revival with Danny Burstein and Jessica Hecht.
