Our powerful and moving Los Angeles premiere of My Name Is Asher Lev officially opened Saturday night, February 22nd, to an exuberant standing ovation. It was a glorious performance and a triumphant launch to an already successful run with many future performances sold out in advance.
Based on the best-selling novel by Chaim Potok and adapted for the stage by Aaron Posner, My Name Is Asher Lev dramatizes the story of a young Jewish boy determined to be an artist — even in direct conflict with his devout Hasidic parents and community. The deeply stirring production is directed by Stephen Sachs and stars Jason Karasev, Anna Khaja and Joel Polis.
The sold-out Opening Night audience included members of the Fountain Theatre artistic team, Fountain Board members Kato Cooks and Karen Kondazian, as well as family, friends and several theater critics and feature writers from the press. All enjoyed the post-show Opening Night Reception upstairs in the Fountain cafe immediately after the performance.
