Win a free copy of the book Tradition by Barbara Eisenberg, subtitled The Highly Improbable, Ultimately Triumphant Broadway-to-Hollywood Story of Fiddler on the Roof, the World’s Most Beloved Musical.
Published for the 50th anniversary of Fiddler on the Roof’s opening night on Broadway, Tradition! weaves together behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes about the Fiddler film and musical, thoughts on its cultural importance and tales of its resonance. Theater journalist Barbara Isenberg interviewed the men and women who created the original production, the film and significant revivals to produce what Library Journal calls “an obligatory purchase for every musical theater collection.”
