The Legacy of Fiddler on the Roof with historian John Kenrick

Who could have predicted that a Yiddish writer’s tales of an impoverished Jewish milkman in czarist Russia, reborn as a smash Broadway hit, would become a cultural touchstone of lasting popularity and global recognition into the 21st century?

In honor of Jewish American Heritage Month, the Scotch Plains Public Library will examine the phenomenon of Fiddler on the Roof from a variety of vantage points.

On Thursday, May 16 at 7 pm, theater historian John Kenrick will present “The Legacy of Fiddler on the Roof,” digging deep into Aleichem’s short stories about a Jewish milkman in a Russian shtetl and how they became a lasting worldwide hit.

No registration is necessary.
