Sheldon Harnick Discusses Musicals In Mufti Series Of ShowsLegendary FIDDLER ON THE ROOF composer Sheldon Harnick discusses the upcoming series of five shows spotlighting his work as part of Musicals In Mufti, having kicked off last month and running through March 9.

As part of the series, Harnick will present new musicals and old, with many having never been seen in their current forms - including a revue, a world premiere and three revisals, as well.

Harnick says of the upcoming series of shows, "For the revue, I wasn't there very much in rehearsal, but for all of the rest of them, except Tenderloin, I will be."

Analyzing the process of refining the shows themselves, Harnick states, "I like editing. Generally, you work under the assumption that everything can be shorter. I like to see if I can reconstruct a sentence. I find that enjoyable work."

Yet, the real work begins once previews start, Harnick reveals.

"Where you learn things, really, is watching it in front of an audience," Harnick opines of the creative process.
