To celebrate the new revival, currently at the Broadway Theatre, here's the full history and tradition of Fiddler on the Roof with a celebration of its score, performed by, among others, Zero Mostel, Topol, Alfred Molina, Molly Picon, Jan Peerce--even the songwriters Bock and Harnick themselves.

The revival of Fiddler on the Roof opened Sunday night at the Broadway Theater and I guess I have to say it’s better than ever and I fought saying that because how does one make a comparison to one of the great musicals of all times which I first saw in 1964. The dancing is simply sensational, the orchestrations the best ever and the cast certainly gives it a super effort to keep us memorized. If you have never seen it (and unless you’re under 6 you probably haven’t) it’s a must see for anyone looking for Broadway's best.
