Notes This album, the second of two, pays tribute to the Jewish roots of American musical theater. It is all about the Broadway music we've all grown up to hear, sing and love. Settle back and enjoy songs from “Fiddler on the Roof”, “South Pacific”, “The King and I”, “West Side Story”, “Porgy & Bess”, and “Showboat.” All these Broadway musicals have their roots in Yiddish folk songs and the Yiddish theater.
