Main Stage Series

April 24th - May 12th


by Aaron Posner
Based on the book by Chaim Potok

Directed by Joe Discher 

This award-winning play by Aaron Posner, based on the best-selling novel by Chaim Potok (the same writers of Playhouse on Park’s sold-out hit, THE CHOSEN) tells the story of Asher Lev, a young Jewish painter torn between his Hassidic 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 profound declaration of the power of storytelling on a stage." --Philadelphia Inquirer.

Thought-provoking, humorous and deeply insightful."
