KC Stage Review: Religion, Art, and Asher Lev

My Name is Asher Lev, playing at the Unicorn through May 12, takes its conflict from the point where art and devout religion clash. The play, by Aaron Posner, from the novel by Chiam Potok, tells the story of Asher Lev, born into a family of devout Hassidic Jews in the middle of the twentieth century. Asher's world is one of devotion to the faith and commitment to the Rebbe. His father devotes his life to the promotion of Judaisim, particularly in Soviet Russia, where Stalin has just died and opportunities are now open for Jews to enter and proselytize. Asher's mother is a woman devoted to her family and serving the men of her faith.
