Exploring Broadway: Fabulous “Fiddler” on Thursday, September 9th from  4-5:15 pm (ET) 

Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock’s beloved Fiddler on the Roof is widely considered the last of Broadway’s “Golden Age” musicals.

However, the touching story and beautiful score proved to capture “the essential human longings for love, community, success, freedom, and family.” Join instructor James Sokol for a one-time exploration – filled with interesting facts, delightful tidbits & nostalgic video clips – of this perennial favorite!  For details & tickets, click here. Please select that you learned about this program from the Schenectady JCC. (See picture below.)
