Photo Coverage: Meet the Cast of MY NAME IS ASHER LEV!

‚Äč

Based on the best selling novel by the author of The Chosen, My Name is Asher Lev, a new play by Aaron Posner, begins performances at The Westside Theatre(407 W. 43rd Street) on November 8, and opening night is set for November 28. Mark Nelson and Jenny Bacon have joined the cast as Asher Lev's parents, Aryeh and Rivkeh.

The cast met the press yesterday and you can catch full coverage from the event below!

Mark Nelson (nine Broadway productions including After The Fall, The Invention of Love at Lincoln Center, A Few Good Men; Obie Award winner for Picasso at the Lapin Agile) and Jenny Bacon (Heartless, Omnium Gatherum) will join previously announced Ari Brand (The Neil Simon Plays, directed by David Cromer, The Diary of Anne Frank). Naama Potok has been cast as the understudy for the role of Asher's mother, Rivkeh. She is the daughter of the author Chaim Potok.

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.

Tickets for the 18-week limited engagement of My Name is Asher Lev at The Westside Theatre are currently on sale at www.Telecharge.com or by calling 212.239.6200.
