This documentary takes an engaging look at the origin of one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals. Director Max Lewkowicz’s film reveals the significance of the production — whose creativity was rooted in early-1960s New York, when “tradition” was on the wane and gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving — and the continuing influence and relevance Fiddler on the Roof has in our world today. Featuring interviews with scholars and Broadway luminaries such as Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick, Harold Prince, Stephen Sondheim, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Michigan’s own Alex Silber.
