Film Screening: Fiddler – A Miracle of Miracles – Virtual – Watch anytime from October 25-28
This is the first in-depth documentary film that chronicles one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on the Roof, 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.
Video Link: Please contact Justin at Justin@hcrj.org to RSVP for the film. The link will be emailed out to registered attendees on Sunday, October 25 at 8am.
