"I'm so saddened about the passing of Theodore Bikel. I saw Theo three weeks ago, but little did I know it was going to be the last time I'd see my distant cousin," Harnick said. "Having watched him perform in Fiddler many, many times over the years, he was one of the best Tevyes I'd ever seen. He delivered deep, moving performances on stage and on screen. He was a man of integrity. This a huge loss for us."
