WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This great theatrical legend returns to New York to unveil this movingly delivered, beautifully sung show about the pioneering 19th - century author Sholom Aleichem. This is a tour de force one-man homage to a writer who was hailed as the Jewish Mark Twain. Told with warmth, humor and a rich catalogue of Yiddish music this major event will be enjoyed by all generations. Sholom Aleichem's stories introduced the world to Tevye the Milkman and inspired the landmark Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof. Theo Bikel played Tevye more than 2,000 performances onstage... Now as playwright and star, Bikel brings back to life one of literature's most beloved authors and a bevy of the unforgettable characters he created. He tells their stories... he sings their songs... he magically melds times long gone with matters that tug at our heartstrings even today. Singing in English and Yiddish, Bikel captivates his audience with an enchanting trove of music from Eastern Europe played live onstage by world-renowned musical director Tamara Brooks and acclaimed accordionist Merima Kljuco.
