In 1894, Sholem Aleichem published a book called Tevye the Dairyman. In the 1950s, Arnold Perl wrote a play based on the book, which was adapted into a Broadway musical in 1964, and then a film in 1971. The story is set in tsarist Russia in 1905, amid government persecution of Jewish communities and the rumblings of revolution. The main story concerns Tevye's daughters, who want to marry for love instead of tradition, and how Tevye reacts to three such scenarios. Contains awesome songs you'll recognize.
