From the roots of the Jewish diaspora to the emergence of the Yiddish language in the early Middle Ages, the themes of suffering and survival have been associated with Judaism. Through an examination of Sholem Alechim’s book Tevye, the Dairyman, published in 1894, we trace how his stories, adapted into the classic musical, Fiddler on the Roof, set the stage for the thematic universality of a myriad of world cultures.
Stephen Kitsakos draws from a wealth of theatre experience, having served on the Theatre Arts Faculty at SUNY New Paltz from 1999-2013, where he taught undergraduate theatre studies and performance and directed many plays. He is also an opera librettist and writer.
