Flashback Friday: Fiddler on the Roof Meets Hair in Soul Doctor

The “Journey of a Rock-Star Rabbi” is once again running in the Big Apple.

Soul Doctor, the musical about the friendship between jazz singer Nina Simone and the folk-singing rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, is back in New York City, playing an off-Broadway run at The Actors' Temple Theatre. For this week's Flashback Friday, take a look at a clip from the show's 2013 Broadway run in TheaterMania's own video from the opening night. Find out what the show's original stars, Eric Anderson (Shlomo) and Amber Iman (Nina), had to say about bringing this story to the stage and the importance of this unknown and unlikely alliance between two of the last century's great musicians.
