Symphony Space will present a sing-along version of the Oscar-nominated 1971 film Fiddler on the Roof March 19 at 6 PM in the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre.
The motion picture, based on the Tony-winning musical of the same name, stars Chaim Topol, who passed away March 9 at the age of 87. In addition to Topol as Tevye, the film also features Norma Crane as Golde, Molly Picon as Yente, and Leonard Frey as Motel.
The 1964 Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof features a book by Joseph Stein, based on stories by Sholem Aleichem, music by Jerry Bock, and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. The original Broadway production, produced by Harold Prince and directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins, won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Directed by Norman Jewison, the motion picture earned three Academy Awards: Cinematography, Sound, and Best Music, Scoring Adaptation and Original Song Score.
The musical centers on Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman living in the village of Anatevka who is faced with the challenge of marrying off his daughters amidst growing tension in his community. The classic score includes "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "Tradition," and "Do You Love Me?," among others.
