Since it first opened on Broadway in September, 1964, "Fiddler on the Roof "has constantly been onstage somewhere, including four Broadway revivals, four productions on London's West End and thousands of schools, army bases and countries from Argentina to Japan. 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." Published in celebration of "Fiddler'"s 50th anniversary, "Tradition "is the book for everyone who loves "Fiddler" and can sing along with the original cast album.
