    One thought on “Tradition!: The Highly Improbable, Ultimately Triumphant Broadway-to-Hollywood Story of Fiddler on the Roof, the World's Most Beloved Musical”

    1. When I entered this giveaway it was motivated by the fact I grew up in Manhattan and going to Broadway shows was as natural for me as going to the movies was to kids growing up in areas far less rich with cultural opportunities. Of course I didn't know then that not every kid had Broadway actors in their classes and that they were a couple of Peter's Lost Boys. Not every kid believed that Peter could fly but I knew he could--he flew right over my head in a darkened theatre. And not every kid sa [...]

    2. I was excited to read this book, because Fiddler on the Roof is one of my favorite movies, and I knew very little about any of the story behind its inception, other than the fact that it was based on the stories of a certain Jewish author.It is quite an interesting story. The book traces the journey from the writers of the original Broadway play, and its subsequent re-writings and paring down, to the movie and beyond. It was quite amusing to get a glimpse (if only a small one) of just how differ [...]

    3. "Tradition," the story of “Fiddler on the Roof,” by Barbara Isenberg, is a winner. In an engaging style, Ms Isenberg, an award-winning journalist, guides us through the journey that transformed a group of short stories about a Russian milkman written in Yiddish by Sholem Aleichem, into an award-winning musical on the Broadway stage and later on the silver screen- a musical that is still performed and beloved worldwide.Through interviews with the artists involved- the creators of the show and [...]

    4. I received Tradition! as part of a giveaway.While the debate over the greatest musical of all time rages on, Tradition! profiles the creation and groundbreaking success one of the best-known and loved in the genre. Isenberg traces the story of the show's inspiration, the short stories of Sholem Aleichem, to the casting and writing of the musical on Broadway, in London's West End, and around the world, the film adapation, and the show's lasting legacy in revivals and popular culture.Isenberg has [...]

    5. [I got this book for free from a First Reads giveaway.]I love Fiddler on the Roof. It is one of my favorite musicals ever. (Not my absolute favorite - that would be Rent. But Fiddler is very close behind.)I enter a TON of giveaways. This was one of the first giveaways I entered that I REALLY wanted to win, and I was super excited when I actually did!I really enjoyed reading this book, really enjoyed reading about the history of Fiddler. The fortunes and misfortunes that happened, the people an [...]

    6. My childhood would have been incomplete without Fiddler. Half our library visits it seems ended in bringing home the VHS, and it's still unnatural watching the DVD version and not having to change tapes. So it's perfect that I also got this book from the library, which lived up to what I was expecting. It gives a history of the play's formation with lots of interesting tidbits and follows through to the still vibrant following today. It made me all nostalgic and gave me some trivia about the pla [...]

    7. This history of Fiddler on the Roof concentrates on the show and the movie. Fast moving and filled with interesting anecdotes. Strangely some of the illustrations are printed twice (once in the body of the book and again in the glossy photo section). Would have liked some color illustrations. Most fun: Fiddler as played in Japan.

    8. A very pleasant and fun look at the musical. It glosses over some of the problems between Robbins and Mostel, and doesn't give the same depth as Wonder of Wonders: A Cultural History of Fiddler on the Roof by Alisa Solomon (see my review of that at wwereportergroup/Articlepx?) but it's still a lot of fun for those who love reading about Broadway musicals.

    9. This is a wonderfully informative and well-written book about a true show-business phenomenon. The creators thought they were writing a Broadway show, but what they came up with was so much more--a true work of art that has been taken to its heart by people all over the world for 50 years. Isenberg tells this story wonderfully well. No theater lover should miss this book.

    10. Barbara Isenberg brings warmth, wit and terrific reporting to the back story of "Fiddler on the Roof." Her lively and engaging book will delight anyone who loves the musical--that is, almost everyone!

    11. The story of the Broadway musical and the film. Includes some great trivia I did not know. Apparently, Zero Mostel was a free spirit and Topol was Israeli and is still touring! It took my theatre company forever to get the rights because of that!

    12. I saw "Fiddler" twice the year it opened. This book brought the memories back. Do rent the DVD and read "Tradition"you will not regret it.

    13. I enjoyed this book. I never knew the backstory about how the Broadway show and the movie were developed. Easy read.

    14. Fascinating behind the scenes look. Didn't know that Zero had such an ego and mindblowing that Frank Sinatra wanted the role of Tevye in the movie.

    15. A delightful behind the curtain look at the development, implementation, and phenomenal success of one of Broadway's most popular musical. L'Chaim!

    16. I was so excited going into this - I love books that delve deeper into one of my favorite musicals. The problem with this one, though, is that honestly, it reads more like an article than a book. It's basically an article stretched out into near 200 pages. It was readable and enjoyable, and yet, there's so much repetition, like again, there's that sense and feeling that what could have been said in just a paragraph is stretched out into 5-10 pages. It makes for a very tedious read despite how we [...]

    17. Wow! What can I say but, without our traditions, our lives would be a shaky as - as a fiddler on the roof.-Fiddler on the roofIf you love this play, the movie, music and all, you will enjoy the history of the book. From Sholem Aleichem, who first wrote the story of his own milkman, to the interviews with Sheldon Harnick, lyricist, and composer Jerry Bock. The timelessness of the story, and it's ability to touch all ethnic groups makes it beloved all over the world.

    18. I enjoyed the first 3/4 and then it began to feel redundant. I wished it had more photos. But it was interesting to read in depth the whole process of making a Broadway Musical and the different roles and effects differ not people have on it's development.

    19. There's nothing more Jewish than Fiddler on the Roof! I first saw the movie based on the film in middle school and was in love: not so much with the film but the Jewish culture, itself. As a result, I started frequenting Jewish restaurants, learning about Jewish customs, and I set a personal goal: I was going to marry a Christian Jew! Despite many of my friends and teachers in high school saying it was an impossible dream, on July 24th, 1999, I married my Jewish Princess! Since then, my wife and [...]

    20. I bought this book after seeing the 2015 revival of Fiddler at the Broadway theater and knew I wanted to know more. The author has brought together wonderful resources to hear the voices of the creators, performers and many others involved in bringing Fiddler to stage and screen. One of my favorite aspects of this book was how the last section was about how far Fiddler reaches including talking with Lin-Manual Miranda who cites it as a major influence on his creation of In the Heights. There are [...]

    21. I have always loved Fiddler on the Roof. I've performed in it three times and directed it twice. As such, I was thrilled to find a book on its creation. After reading it, I have to say I was disappointed. I expected so much more, especially since the book boasts such good sources in its research. Much of the recollections were shallow and very brief. "We all wept." "The cast was in tears." "The production team was crying." Please. Even as a confirmed weeper, I found that description very tedious [...]

    22. I loved the opening about the writing process of Fiddler on the Roof and the end about the impact it has had. I am producing this right now with my high school students and I found a lot of material that was helpful as I think about directing and designing it and that I can share with my students to help them understand the show and the characters. The middle got a bit dry with lots of names and dates. But I really enjoyed reading this. I was especially amused about the description of the 2007-2 [...]

    23. This is a good overview of the history of Fiddler on Broadway and at the movies. The online book reviewers that say it's "thin" or could be longer are correct, but what's here is a good start combining a variety of sources. The author did interview some of the major players, though some of the interviews are decades old. The only complaint is that this book lacks objectivity--the theatrical show isn't perfect as stated here and the movie is treated like a classic when in truth it was poorly cast [...]

    24. This was sort of interesting. It had interesting details about the development of the musical, although presented very bare - and then more than half the book was about the critical reception, subsequent productions, the movie, etc. I would have been more interested in greater detail about the actual writing and development of the script, characters, and music, of which there was fairly little.

    25. Such a great story of how one of my all time favorite musicals came to be. I love how it goes from the very beginnings of a little story to the phenomenon that it is today. It's always amazing to see just how many lives got touched by this beautifully written play, then movie.

    26. Barely 3 stars. Historical reference, but interesting information could have been done by In depth magazine article.
