Jackson (Asher Lev) discuss the story and themes of the play, adapted from the best-selling novel by Chaim Potok. Click below to watch the interview!

Miles G. Jackson (4000 Miles) portrays the titular Jewish artist Asher Lev, who must be a painter despite his faith and the will of his family. Bob Ari (Frost/Nixon, GSP's Red) and Lena Kaminsky (Law & Order, GSP's The Pillowman) both return to George Street to round out the cast.

The award-winning MY NAME IS ASHER LEV, adapted from the best-selling novel by Chaim Potok, tells the story of a young Jew growing up in post-war Brooklyn. His artistic talent is apparent from an early age and he can't imagine himself doing anything else. He must create art at any cost, regardless of the will of his family, his community and tradition.

Michael Miller (GSP's Outside Mullingar, Twelve Angry Men, [title of show]), costume designer David Murin (GSP's Outside Mullingar, Good People, The Nutcracker and I), lighting designer Christopher J. Bailey (GSP's Sex With Strangers, Nureyev's Eyes, Clever Little Lies), original music composer/sound designer Scott Killian (GSP's Sex With Strangers, Nureyev's Eyes, Clever Little Lies), and stage manager Tom Clewell (GSP's Nureyev's Eyes, The Second Mrs. Wilson).
