Update: Actor Henry Goodman, who played Tevye in the 2007 London stage version of Fiddler on the Roof joins the line-up for this event. 

We celebrate a half-century since the opening of Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway, looking at the life of the musical on stage and screen and Sholem Aleichem’s Yiddish stories that inspired it. What is it about Fiddler’s winning combination of family, tradition and song that has had such a hold on the Jewish cultural imagination ever since?
