About the Film:

Revealing how the story of Tevye the Milkman became an unlikely Broadway classic, Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles is a sweeping and joyous look back at the creative origins and long-lasting cultural impact of a musical masterpiece. When it first opened on Broadway in 1964, Fiddler on the Roof seemed poised to be a massive flop, only to become one of the most popular shows in the American theater canon, holding the record as the longest-running Broadway musical for almost 10 years. 

Touching audiences with its humor and heart, the show’s universal tale of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion. Bringing Fiddler to life through rare archival materials, performance footage, and clips from the Oscar-winning 1971 film adaptation, filmmaker Max Lewkowicz chronicles the show’s backstory, from its early New York roots to the enduring themes that inspire theatergoers across the generations. Insights from the musical's creators and cast are paired with lively commentary from luminaries Stephen Sondheim, Itzhak Perlman and Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, who are among the interviewees included in this definitive look at a musical phenomenon that continues to resonate with audiences worldwide.
