Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish—Conversation and Performances

Joel Grey, Steven Skybell, Jackie Hoffman, and Jennifer Babiak with David Rockwell
Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish

Join Oscar and Tony award winner Joel Grey who directed this new critically acclaimed production of Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish, Broadway veteran Steven Skybell, Emmy-nominated actress Jackie Hoffman, and Jennifer Babiak for a celebratory talk and performance of songs from the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene production of Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish—now playing at Stage 42 on New York City’s 42nd Street.

Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish had never been staged in the United States until this production was presented at NYTF at the Museum of Jewish Heritage this past summer. The story of The Yiddish translation, originally performed in Israel in 1965, was artfully crafted by Shraga Friedman, a renown Israeli actor/director just one year after the Broadway debut of Fiddler on the Roof.
