Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles

Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles

“Astonishing... a marvelously rich look into one of the greatest musicals of all time!” - Deadline Hollywood

One of Broadway's most beloved and long-running musicals, Fiddler on the Roof’s creative roots and cultural impact are celebrated in this joyous documentary. Created in 1960s New York, a time when ‘tradition’ was on the wane, as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving, Fiddler on The Roof is at once ancient and timeless, personal and universal.

Max Lewkowicz's captivating film is full of insightful interviews with the musical's creators, performance clips from productions around the world and lively commentary from admirers like Stephen Sondheim and Itzhak Perlman. This heartwarming dedication to the musical phenomenon will have you cheering l'chaim from your seats.
