|On May 1 at 7:00pm, the TBJ Sisterhood invites you to Zoom-in on “The Creation of Fiddler on the Roof,” presented by Charles Troy, America’s most acclaimed dramatic musical theatre historian.
The stories of Yiddish writer Sholom Aleichem seemed an unlikely subject for a musical, and certainly of limited appeal. We’ll see how genius director-choreographer Jerome Robbins guided his creative team to find universality in the material, and how they made a “Jewish musical” that struck a responsive chord in virtually every country in the world.
Charles Troy is a graphic designer and former theatre lyricist. During the pandemic, he has converted his multimedia presentations on musical theatre subjects into videos which he presents virtually. Mr. Troy’s visually seamless presentations combine his own original graphics with historic photos, edited audio tracks with the lyrics displayed onscreen, and illustrative video clips. — all coordinated with a scripted narrative, weaving pertinent events into a dramatic tale.
