Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen

November 17, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Festival

Location: Lahn Social Hall

Sponsored by Resintech/The Gottlieb Family

The fall of 2021 marked the 50th anniversary of Fiddler on the Roof, the film Pauline Kael (The New Yorker) called “the most powerful movie musical ever made.” Narrated by Jeff Goldblum, Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen captures the humor and drama of director Norman Jewison’s quest to recreate the lost world of Jewish life in Tsarist Russia and re-envision the beloved stage hit as a wide-screen epic. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Daniel Raim puts us in the director’s chair and in Jewison’s heart and mind, drawing on behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen stills as well as original interviews with Jewison, Topol (Tevye), composer John Williams, production designer Robert F. Boyle, film critic Kenneth Turan, lyricist Sheldon Harnick, and actresses Rosalind Harris, Michele Marsh, and Neva Small (Tevye’s daughters).

Being Chava

Following Fiddler’s Journey documentary, Neva Small (Chava) will join us to share her personal journey to the screen and we learn how a 17-year-old actor from New York City got cast in an enormous movie musical.
