Based On The Best-Selling Novel By Chaim Potok (The Chosen), My Name is Asher Lev is a new American play set in Brooklyn. It tells the powerful story of a boy prodigy who must be an artist at any cost - against the will of family, community and tradition. It is a luminous portrait of a young artist with a universal theme to follow our passion. This play is written by Aaron Posner and directed by Gordon Edelstein.
The best-selling novel is considered one of author Chaim Potok's finest works. According to The New York Times Book Review, it is "A novel of finely articulated tragic power... Little short of a work of genius." The Wall Street Journal states, "Profound in its vision of humanity, of religion, and of art."
My Name is Asher Lev is the newest play to transfer to the New York stage from the Long Wharf Theatre. More than 30 Long Wharf productions have moved to Broadway and Off Broadway, including: Wit (Pulitzer Prize), The Shadow Box (Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play), Hughie, American Buffalo, and The Gin Game (Pulitzer Prize).
