Why See My Name Is Asher Lev?
One boy's struggle between Tradition & Art. Based on the best-selling novel by Chaim Potok (The Chosen), My Name is Asher Lev is a new American play set in Brooklyn.
It tells the powerful story of a boy prodigy who must be an artist at any cost - against the will of family, community and tradition.
It is a luminous portrait of a young artist with a universal theme to follow our passion.
