“When I was young, I would often look at myself in the mirror for a long time. Not for vanity. But because I was so curious about the person on the other side.” – Asher Lev


Generations clash in this stirring coming of age tale about a Jewish painter torn between his Hassidic upbringing and his artistic passion. Potok’s classic novel is brought to life with simple and imaginative theatricality as three actors in multiple roles portray a universal story sure to resonate deeply with high school students, about family, tradition, culture, faith, and the search for identity.

“Thought-provoking, humorous and deeply insightful.”
