On the next Fresh Air, a new Yiddish language production of Fiddler on the Roof is currently in New York. Terry talks with Steven Skybell who plays Tevye, and with Joel Grey who directs the show, about the production, the dimension Yiddish brings to it, and why the play resonates so much today. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download from the App Store & Google Play.
