Teyve is coming back.
Playwright Joseph Stein, who turned a Yiddish short story into the classic Broadway musical "Fiddler on the Roof" and later wrote the screenplay for its successful movie adaptation, has died at age 98.
At age 96, he was on hand for the 2008 off-Broadway production of "Enter Laughing," a buoyant, retitled version of his flop 1976 musical "So Long, 174th Street," which, in turn, was based on a play Stein wrote, also called "Enter Laughing."
He also wrote for radio and for television during its early golden age, working for such performers as Henry Morgan, Sid Caesar and Phil Silvers.
