Tevye’s Daughters

Tevye’s Daughters: From Chawton to Broadway

In this presentation, the fourth of my annual series on the beloved musical Fiddler on the Roof, I will explore the character arcs of Teyve’s three eldest daughters (Tzeitel, Hodel, and Chava) and their transformation from page to stage.

September 22, 2014 will be the 50th anniversary of Fiddler’s very first Opening Night on Broadway, so come learn why you should plan to celebrate this special day.

When: Tues, Aug 7, 2012

Where: 12:15 PM at the Northbrook Public Library

1201 Cedar Lane; Northbrook IL

OR “instant replay” at 6 PM

Harold Washington Library Center

400 South State Street; Chicago Loop

Both programs are sponsored by the Chicago YIVO Society as part of their annual Summer Festival of Yiddish Culture. All Chicago YIVO Summer Festival programs are free & open to the public. Sincere appreciation to Steve Gianni & the NPL staff, and Will Sumner & the HWLC staff.

    A good friend just asked: “Will tomorrow’s presentation be similar to the Hodel/Marie Waife-Goldberg presentations you gave last year for Chgo YIVO, Limmud & KAMII?”

    Answer: Similar? Well yes, I am certainly still Fiddler-obsessed… but on 8/7 I will address a whole new set of topics as I continue to “peel the onion.”
