Aaron Posner's luminous new play is based on the visionary novel of the same name by Chaim Potok (whose other novels include The Chosen). Possessing a prodigious artistic ability, Asher Lev is compulsively driven to draw and paint the world he sees and feels. Born into a Hasidic Jewish family in post-World War II Brooklyn, his artistic genius threatens to estrange him from both his parents and his community. Asher's journey is by turns heartbreaking and exultant as he's torn between two identities, one consecrated to God, the other subject to the imagination.
