HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Feb. 5, 2014 - PRLog -- A young painter must reconcile his remarkable artistic gifts with the austerity and singular devotion required by his faith. Stephen Sachs directs the Los Angeles premiere of Aaron Posner’s award-winning stage adaptation of Chaim Potok’s acclaimed novel, My Name is Asher Lev, opening Feb. 22 at the Fountain Theatre. Set in Brooklyn’s Hasidic Jewish community, Asher Lev is the powerful story of a young man’s struggle to become an artist at any cost – against the will of his parents, community and tradition. Exploring questions of art, family, religion and loyalty, this extraordinary adaptation is a compelling look at the price of individuality.

“This is a play about the struggle to discover and be who you are,” says Sachs. “Sometimes who you are is in conflict with your family and your community. Art has the power to destroy as well as to heal. What do you do when you know that the art you create might hurt the people you love?”

My Name is Asher Lev opens on Saturday, Feb. 22, with performances Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays @ 8 p.m. and Sundays @ 2 p.m, through April 19. Preview performances take place Feb. 15 through 21 on the same schedule. Tickets are $34 (reserved seating), except previews which are $20. On Thursdays and Fridays only, seniors over 65 and students with ID are $25. The Fountain Theatre is located at 5060 Fountain Avenue (at Normandie) in Los Angeles.Secure, on-site parking is available for $5. The Fountain Theatre is air-conditioned and wheelchair accessible.
