About this show

Exploring the questions of art, family, religion and loyalty, this adaptation of Chaim Potok's novel is a powerful coming-of-age story. Asher Lev, born into a Hasidic Jewish family, tries to balance his artistic genius with the demands of his family. A poignant and elegant drama, The Philadelphia Inquirer called this play "exquisite" and Talkin' Broadway labeled it "a truly theatrical experience". Due to brief nudity and adult subject matter, this play is best enjoyed by audiences ages 15 and up.
