I was a very lucky first reads of this book Fiddler on the Roof this particular copy I received is in celebration of the 50 anniversary of the play Although the book is from Joseph Stein, it is based on the writings of Sholem Aleichem s stories Fiddler on the roof is one of my very favorite movies It was originally a play that started in 1964 It is a wonderful story.Tevye is the lead character he lives in the fictional village called Anatevka russia in 1905 Tevye is a poor man married with five [...]
I am an avid fan of musical theater and I also love to troll the book section at literally any store that sells them Dollar stores can have diamonds if you are willing to squat on the floor and paw through them like a cherubic dwarf I found Fiddler on the Roof and a strange movie tie in edition of Great Expectations at my local Dollar Tree The bright yellow book usually costs fifteen dollars and the cashier was cute double win I was familiar with Fiddler on the Roof through only a few songs and [...]
I picked this up as a reminder of the script prior to auditioning for a role in a new local production I think it is interesting that one does not really find books like this any longer being produced a hardcover version of a popular play that is currently on Broadway I am not sure if there is just not a market for it, if they were afraid that people would start illegally producing their own versions of it in their backyards, or if maybe they are doing this sort of thing and my local library, bo [...]
I received Fiddler on the Roof through the LibraryThing Early Reviewerprogram.This is the complete libretto of the famous musical, together with the lyrics of the hilarious and heartbreaking songs It is not a volume of sheet music just the beautiful story of Tevye, the traditions he agrees to sacrifice for love of his daughters, and the one compromise he is unable to accept.This is a truly great work, saturated with dark humor and with love I hope, since I ve made that point, it is also OK for m [...]
This play, movie and book were derived originally from the writings of Sholom Aleihem s stories There are few productions that combine humor, tragedy, love and sadness as well as this story of the persecution of Russian Jews at the turn of the century Reading this play is assisted greatly by the constant reminder of Topal or Zero Mostel and others in the stage or film version Surprisingly, this book is not identical to the movie or the stage productions that I have seen.I found it amusing that w [...]
A friend loaned this to me, I read it, cried, and read it again As luck would have it two weeks later a small theater near me had a live performance and I enjoyed in It is so good, not only are the characters believable but the circumstances, the expressions, and throughout one became aware of the Jewish traditions and customs I recently found out that Joseph Stein passed away, but reading his story I became aware of how many of his writings I had read A wonderful author with that gift of expla [...]
I am a huge fan of this play musical and this book did not disappoint I sat down to read a few pages and ended up finishing it in an afternoon I am always in awe of the wonderful whimsy, playfulness, and humor that this story holds It will forever be one of my favorites and I am so glad that I now own a print edition.
This was a really good read After watching my brother play Lazar Wolfe In the musical of Fiddler on the Roof I got really interested in the play after watching it live a few times, singing the songs nonstop everyday pretending as if I were the actress in the musical After realizing how interested I was in the musical, I went to go see if they had the book of it at my local library, and they did The book did not disappoint I never wanted to let go of the book, It was a real page turner It gave me [...]
The wonderful musical play based on Russian Jewish life in the early 1900 s The play focuses on Tevye and his family in the Russian village of Anatevka Tevye and his wife have five daughters and the play centers on three of them falling in love and getting married in the middle of the Jewish pogroms carried out in Tsarist Russia This version of the play includes the lyrics of the beautiful songs from the musical A Reader s Corner Highly Recommended Read and a classic drama.
Sometimes I like to sit in a coffee shop, put on the cast album of a musical, and read the libretto and book that goes along with it Did this with Fiddler on Saturday because I love this play so much and needed a much awaited break from academia during finals.
I did not care for this at all.
I ve loved this since middle school so it holds a special place in my heart
This is the first time that I have read this play It is as wonderful as the musical I loved it Long live Tevye.
It s interesting how bare bones the play script is compared to what we actually see especially compared to the movie Hard to really rate it like a book when it s missing the music and everything.
When I was in highschool I went to a very small charter school Christian men and women ran the school and taught here One of my favorite teachers said her name came from the story Fiddler on the Roof So naturally I thought maybe this book play is one of those Christian stories that I am than likely never in my life going to read.So going through my list of available books on blogging for books this week I spent soooooo much time debating what to choose I saw fiddler on the roof and thought Mayb [...]
The suffering mankind has enforced on itself over the centuries is appalling Race, nationality, country, enthnic, ancenstry, religion One human being is no different from another, due to their birth place nor heritage Yet in this story their is supression, and violence, and death, all for the sake of hatred and anger, as the ego of those who will, deny those who need A classic, and a book filled with lessons, should never be overlooked or left to collect dust on a shelf The book is far better th [...]
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is an easy read book written in the form of a play Set in Russia in the year 1905, the plot centers around a loving husband and father, Tevye, who is steeped in Jewish tradition and struggles through the unorthodox ways in which his daughters fall in love, become engaged, and marry certain young men of the village As his character develops and begins to accept a modern approach to romance, his love for his wife and children deepens and, although at the end of the play he mus [...]
Such an amazing musical I rarely read musicals, but as I did I could definitely hear the songs in my mind from the famous Topol version I suppose it s like when you hear a characters voice in a specific actor s voice because you ve seen a really good production with that actor.The story itself is a great fable about the coming of modernity and the consequent erosion of traditional authority and hierarchy The musical centers on Tevye, a poor Jewish man in Russian in 1905, and his wife and daughte [...]
Who could believe that Fiddler on the Roof is about to celebrate its 50th anniversary on Broadway Could it possibly have been that long To coincide with the event here is a copy of the full text as well as the lyrics to the songs as they appear in the play Reading the play was interesting Asides, that may slip by in a theater are all caught in print, yet you can t read the words without hearing them, or the lyrics without the music running through your head What I found most interesting, however [...]
Full disclosure I was chosen a First Reads winner, and received a beautiful hardbound copy with dust jacket of Fiddler on the Roof This book is the exact libretto of the Broadway musical, based on Sholem Aleichem s stories, book by Joseph Stein, music by Jerry Bock, and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick It is a favorite of mine, and a quick read that brings back many memories of past productions.For those who have never seen the musical or a film version of it, this is the poignant story of Tevye s fami [...]
Reading this made me want to watch the movie so bad This book is the complete script for the original musical, it s awesome I found myself humming along to the songs while I was reading Reading the script made me appreciate how brilliant this musical really is It s timely and continues to speak to people The human drama and raw emotion shown in the dialogue and songs are still prevalent today nearly fifty years after it debuted on Broadway Full of historical drama, Jewish identity, tradition, an [...]
I received Fiddler on the Roof as a First Read.This was so delightful What s not to love Right, Of course Right In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Broadway premier this book includes the full script book and lyrics for one of my favorite shows While reading I couldn t help but sing out loud Brought back so many memories from the movie as well as stage productions I ve seen Mostly memories from the summer I worked on costumes for an amazing community theater when I was 14 The only thing that [...]
I read this after seeing the production on Broadway I wanted to relive the moment and the book has done just that Tevye, the milkman works hard to support his wife, Golde, and his five daughters, Tzeitel, Hodel, Chava, Shprintze, and Bielke There is Motel, the tailor, Yente, the matchmaker, Lazar Wolf, the butcher and Perchik, the student, amongst many neighbors in their little village of Anatevka Things are changing in the world all around them and yet they remain stuck their ways Why Tradition [...]
Fiddler on the Roof was the first high school musical I ever saw I felt like I had come full circle when I performed in the show myself at age 15 At age 25 I performed in it again in the same role , and felt like once again I had come full circle It s only appropriate for a show based in tradition, heritage and ritual, and Stein s script, when combined with Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick s incomparable score, is the perfect folk tragicomedy.
Good enough for horseshoes and hand grenades This was a really good play I read it over the course of just a couple of days, so the cast of characters which is large, for a two act play escaped me a bit But by and large, a good story I would like to read the short stories to get a little depth, maybe see the play.
This musical is very near and dear to my heart It was my first show that I ever did when I was 11 and played the part of Tevye s fourth daughter, Shprintze Ten years later, I auditioned again and got to play the part of Hodel, Tevye s second daughter This is such a beautiful story and I could read this over and over again Truly a remarkable, memorable classic.
Thanks for the book For the fiftieth anniversary of the 1964 Broadway Musical Fiddler on the Roof, they have published a great little hardcover book of the play There is an original cast list and the play with song lyrics and nothing You don t need anything else Any fan of the play or collector of Broadway memorabilia will love this book.
I was in a production of Fiddler as a child, but that was than a few years ago It was really fun to receive this book and be able to read through it and remember the production that I was in and sing along to the songs I received this book for free through the Goodread s First Reads program.
I received Fiddler on the Roof as part of a giveaway.This is the book script and libretto song lyrics for the classic musical Fiddler on the Roof No , no less, but for fans of musicals and this musical in particular , it s a must have.
I had to read this book for school and, to be honest, I wasn t really excited about the story line But once I started reading it, it was really good The main story is that a famliy of Jewish people are starting to lose their traditions I loved the characters personalities as well.
