My Name is Asher Lev

Written by Aaron Posner, adapted from the novel by Chaim Potok
Directed by Mira Hirsch

 

 

"This is religion vs. art in a young man who believes in both."
-Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post

 

Possessing a prodigious artistic ability, Asher Lev is driven to draw and paint the world as he sees it. Born into a Hasidic family in post-World War II Brooklyn, his artistic genius threatens to estrange him from both his parents and his observant Jewish community. A fascinating coming-of-age story that seamlessly explores art, family and religion.

 

"The Outfit’s production is one of the most potent plays to be produced on an Atlanta stage this year. It’s an auspicious start to a new season for Theatrical Outfit." -Andrew Alexander, ArtsATL.com

 

"Arapoglou's engrossing performance suggests that to play a great artist, it doesn't hurt to be one yourself." -Curt Holman, Creative Loafing

 

"Meticulously directed and acted, this play is going to win awards.  You’ll kick yourself if you miss it, so my advice is—don’t." -Manning Harris, Atlanta INTown
