We pick up our conversation about Broadway’s most influential creator with a deep dive into one of his most enduring musicals. With the unmistakably Harold Prince trademark of a theme-based plot, our chosen deep dive is Fiddler on the Roof, the last musical of Broadway’s Golden Age. Host Sally Fuller is again joined by Laura Carman to discuss what makes a religious story about “a small town and their small issues” Broadway’s most internationally beloved musical.
