Based on the best-selling novel by Chaim Potok (The Chosen), My Name is Asher Lev, a new play by Aaron Posner, opened last night at The Westside Theatre. The play's New York premiere follows an acclaimed engagement at the Long Wharf Theatre earlier this year. BroadwayWorld brings you complete opening night coverage - check out the curtain call below!

Set in post-war Brooklyn, My Name is Asher Lev tells the powerful story of a boy prodigy who must paint 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.
