Tradition!: The Highly Improbable, Ultimately Triumphant Broadway-to-Hollywood Story of Fiddler on the Roof, the World’s Most Beloved Musical
L.A. Theatre Works adds Tradition! to its Library of Theatrical Recordings. Barbara Isenberg interviewed the men and women behind the original production, the film and significant revivals—Harold Prince, Sheldon Harnick, Joseph Stein, Austin Pendleton, Joanna Merlin, Norman Jewison, Topol, Harvey Fierstein and more—to produce a lively, popular chronicle of the making of Fiddler on the Roof. Published in celebration of Fiddler on the Roof‘s 50th anniversary, Tradition! is the book for everyone who loves Fiddler and can sing along with the original cast album.
Since it first opened on Broadway in September, 1964, Fiddler on the Roof has constantly been onstage somewhere, including five Broadway revivals, four productions on London’s West End, and thousands of schools, army bases, and countries from Argentina to Japan.
Narrated by Adam Grupper, from the hit Broadway revival.
Recorded at Brick Shop Audio, Inc., New York City in of 2016.
Funding for the audiobook was provided with major support from The Lear Family Foundation and the Jewish Community Federation of Los Angeles. Additional support comes from Paula Brand, Fariba Ghaffari, Rachel Goodman, Barry and Marilyn Hinden, Bernard Sobelsohn, and Joyce Zaitlin.
