My Name Is Asher Lev
Aggregate Theatre Company is proud to partner with Ridge Road Baptist Church and Jewish for Good in presenting My Name Is Asher Lev.
Adapted by Aaron Posner from the book by Chaim Potok, My Name Is Asher Lev follows the journey of a young Jewish painter torn between his Hasidic upbringing and his desperate need to fulfill his artistic promise. When his artistic genius threatens to destroy his relationship with his parents and community, young Asher realizes he must make a difficult choice between art and faith. This stirring adaptation of a modern classic presents a heartbreaking and triumphant vision of what it means to be an artist.
A project that brings together Christian, Jewish, and theatre organizations may be a rarity, but these partners believe theatre can be an effective way to infuse more compassion in the world through a display of interfaith cooperation.
