"Tevye's Daughters" from Yiddish "Fiddler" Sing "Making Whoopee" in Yiddish


Rachel Zatcoff and Stephanie Lynne Mason, who are currently playing the roles of Tevye's daughters Tsaytel and Hodel in Joel Grey's Yiddish production of Fiddler on the Roof, shared the stage last December at a special Folksbiene benefit concert honoring Broadway director Jerry Zaks.

The two singers performed a Yiddish version of Makin' Whoopee, the song made famous by Eddie Cantor in 1929.

Just below the Folksbiene concert video you'll find an excerpt from the film Makin' Whoopee with Cantor singing the song back in the day.

Enjoy!
