BroadwayRadio Premieres New Show 'Tell Me More' with Actress, Author Alexandra Silber

Nearly a year after their first conversation, acclaimed actress Alexandra Silber and BroadwayWorld and BroadwayRadio's Matt Tamanini talk about her new book "After Anatevka," which follows the journey of Tevye's second oldest daughter Hodel as she travels far from the home she loves in search of her imprisoned fiancé, Perchik.

During the conversation, AlBroadwayRadio Premieres New Show 'Tell Me More' with Actress, Author Alexandra Silber explains how writing the book brought her to a better understanding of herself, why the "Matchmaker" scene in "Fiddler on the Roof's" most recent Broadway revival was so different from those that came before it, and how the death of her father impacted the story in "After Anatevka."

"After Anatevka" is available now on Amazon and at booksellers nationwide.
