Portraits of beloved icons Sholom Aleichem and Theodore Bikel are woven together to reveal two men with much in common: wit, wisdom, and talent—all shot through with deep humanity and Yiddishkeit. Theodore Bikel, the unstoppable performer whose career spans more than 150 screen roles and countless stage and musical productions, is also the foremost interpreter of Sholom Aleichem’s work, including the classic “Fiddler on the Roof.”
