A production of "Fiddler on the Roof" done entirely in Yiddish was a surprise sell-out smash last summer. It was so popular that two Broadway producers have gotten behind it, and it's reopening in the largest off-Broadway theater in New York. Reporter Jon Kalish (@kalishjon) has the story.

This segment aired on March 19, 2019.
