When Asher’s art threatens to rip his family apart, he must struggle to reconcile the impossible demands of art and religion in this powerful, challenging new play.
WINNER – Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play
B Street proudly opens its 2013-2014 B3 Series season with the nationally acclaimed My Name is Asher Lev, adapted from the beloved novel by Chaim Potok (The Chosen). Growing up in a small Hasidic community in 1950’s Brooklyn, Asher Lev cannot help but express the quiet anguish pulsing through his home in his own highly controversial style. As his family and community demand complete adherence to religious tradition, Asher must struggle to reconcile his remarkable artistic gifts with the austerity and singular devotion his faith requires. Potok and Posner paint a potent picture of one artist’s coming-of-age in this passionate new play.
My Name is Asher Lev is the 1st show of B Street’s 2013-2014 B3 Series Season.
