He took a job with Yiddish theater in Pittsburgh just shy of his 18th birthday. “I thought, ‘This is where I belong.’ And I’ve been in the theater ever since.”. In 1964, as Yiddish theater was dying, he was hired for the touring company of the Broadway hit “Fiddler on the Roof.” He later said: “I went to do ‘Fiddler’ for less money than I was getting in Yiddish theater, but I had to make the move.
