Chgo YIVO: Aug ’13

Now live on JUF Online: Preview of Coming Attractions for my Aug 13/Aug 15 Lecture: “Who is ‘the Fiddler’… and how did he get on the roof? I started asking myself these two questions over thirteen years ago, in May 2000, on a trip to the Marc Chagall Biblical Message Museum in Nice. Now, after a decade of devotion to all things Fiddler, I have some answers I would like to share with you as I prepare a new lecture for the Chicago YIVO Society’s Summer Festival of Yiddish Culture…” CLICK HERE FOR JUF POST.

Chicago Shout-Out: I’m on my way to Chicago soon for three programs sponsored by the Chicago YIVO Society.

Aug 13 (Tues) & Aug 15 (Thurs), I will give a new lecture on Fiddler on the Roof. This will be the 5th lecture in my annual series celebrating Fiddler’s Broadway premiere on 9/22/64. This year’s lecture, called “The Fiddler: From Rozhanka to Broadway,” will explore significant differences between the stage version directed by Jerome Robbins (in 1964) and the screen version directed by Norman Jewison (in 1971).
