The project, produced by Josh Sugarman through the Tenafly Film Co., will be directed by Eric Weber from his own script and is based on his short story about the tumultuous marriage of a couple, Tim and Emily Hanratty, over half a century.
Also in the cast are Andre Braugher, Alexis Bledel, Kal Penn, Adam Rose and Luke Brandon Field.
In the film, six vignettes are portrayed by 12 actors, with real-life husband and wife Olympia Dukakis (Rose) and Louis Zorich (Hadrian VII) playing the couple in the final stages of their life.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
