Instead of fa la la, sing deedle deedle dum at this Hanukkah concert and sing-along celebrating the 50th anniversary of Fiddler on the Roof. The event includes author Barbara Isenberg discussing and signing her new book, Tradition! The Highly Improbable, Ultimately Triumphant Broadway-to-Hollywood Story of Fiddler on the Roof, the World’s Most Beloved Musical. The book chronicles how Sholem Aleichem’s stories went from a Broadway show in 1964 to an Oscar-nominated film in 1971, as well as subsequent stage revivals. Isenberg incorporates interviews with cast and crew behind Fiddler’s many incarnations, including theater producer Harold Prince, lyricist Sheldon Harnick, director Norman Jewison and actors Topol and Harvey Fierstein.
