My Name is Asher Lev, pay what you can, at the Performance Network tonight

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.
