Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles


Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles is the first in-depth documentary to chronicle the origin story behind one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when “tradition” was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving.

“NYT Critic’s Pick! This fascinating love letter to Fiddler on the Roof asks: What makes the quintessentially Jewish musical speak to everyone?” – Jason Zinoman, New York Times

The film reveals why the story of Tevye the milkman is reborn again and again as beloved entertainment and cultural touchstone the world over. Opening in 1964, Fiddler on the Roof held the record for the longest running musical for almost 10 years, won nine Tony Awards, and spawned five Broadway revivals. The show is still performed more than any other show, from middle schools in inner cities to high schools in rural America to major theatres around the world. Featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sheldon Harnick, Hal Prince, Austin Pendleton, Joanna Merlin, Danny Burstein, Itzhak Perlman, Charles Isherwood, Harvey Fierstein and many more! (Dir. by Max Lewkowicz, 2019, USA, 92 mins., Rated PG-13)
