Pushing eclecticism to its limits, Manhattan’s Knitting Factory mines cover material from an unlikely source: Fiddler on the Roof. And it works: The musical’s energetic ethnicity yields more than a few nuggets. Pop terrorists Negativland turn ”Tevye’s Dream” into a trippy sound pastiche; Jill Sobule’s reworking of ”Sunrise, Sunset” is appropriately understated; and the Hasidic New Wavers put a sweaty exuberance into ”Wedding Celebration.” B
