The Performance Network is currently showing Aaron Posner's adaption of Chaim Potok 1972 novel, My Name is Asher Lev. This and every Thursday, they will have a special pay-what-you-can showing. You'll have to hurry though, the show starts at 7:30. Here's a description:
[My name is Asher Lev] tells the story of a boy growing up in a sheltered Hasidic community in 1950s Brooklyn, who discovers he has a prodigious talent as an artist. Struggling to reconcile his gift with the community’s Orthodox values, he immerses himself in an art form steeped in Christian imagery. When he brings forth a masterwork entitled “The Brooklyn Crucifixions,” he must decide whether or not to honor his self-expression and exhibit, potentially bringing shame on his family, his community, and even his faith. Featuring Naz Edwards, Mitchell Koory, and John Seibert. A co-production with the Jewish Ensemble Theatre.Stay tuned for a full review.
