BWW Review: MY NAME IS ASHER LEV Speaks to our Hearts and our Arts at Eternity Playhouse
by Brodie Paparella - May 16, 2016

If there is anything an audience can relate to in contemporary theatre, it is the concept of struggling to forge ahead with one's own individual passions whilst navigating the traditions of the past and the expectations of those who, having grown up in more desperate times, had only such traditions to survive by. Where parents fought to give their children a better life, but don't know how to handle it when they start to take such opportunities. My Name is Asher Lev turns up the dial hard on this theme by setting such conflict in the home of an observant Torah Jewish family, wherein the titular character is awakened with a prodigal gift for art. In his father's mind, this gift is from the devil. So Asher's narrative plays out as the ultimate declaration of independence from family, from community, but not perhaps from faith. (more...)
