Autographed two bar musical quotation of Sunrise, Sunset by the Broadway lyricist from “Fiddler on the Roof”.  The quotation is on an 8.5” x 11” recent matte photograph with the lyricist standing over the composer, Jerry Bock.

The original production of Fiddler on the Roof” opened in 1964 and ran for 3,000 productions.  The musical won three Tony Awards during the first run, Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.  It was revived on Broadway in 1976, 1981, 1990, 2004 and 2015 winning another 6 Tony Awards in the process.  It also became a feature film in 1971.  The song, “Sunrise, Sunset” Tevye the Milkman and his wife Golde has become an anthem at Jewish events from Bar/Bat Mitzvah’s, to Weddings and even funerals.

Harnick (1924-    ) and Jerry Bock (1928-2010) paired up to create one of the successful music teams of the 1960’s.  Their other works were not quite as successful as “Fiddler”, but won acclaim in their day including, “Fiorello” in 1959 won the Pulitzer Prize for drama, also, “Songs to Ford-ify Your Future” in 1959, “Tenderloin” in 1960, “She Loves Me” in 1963, “The Apple Tree” in 1966, “Her First Roman” in 1968 and “The Rothschild’s” in 1970.  The joined together again in 2004 to compose the song “Topsy-Turvy” for the 2004 Broadway revival of “Fiddler on the Roof”.

A wonderful Broadway souvenir!
