Film Screening – Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles
October 25 - October 28
It’s time for another exciting HCRJ film screening! Starting Sunday, October 25, you can watch Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles! This is the first in-depth documentary film that chronicles one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on the Roof.
Watch anytime from Sunday, October 25 through Wednesday, October 28. View a preview here.
Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles explores the play and its creative roots in 1960s New York when “tradition” was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race-relations and religion were evolving. For the first time, intimate interviews with the show’s creators reveal how the 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-20th century 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.
