“What price are you willing to pay to pursue your passion?” This is the question posed by the novel-turned play My Name is Asher Lev. Asher is a young Hasidic Jew living in Brooklyn circa 1950 who finds delight in using his artistic gifts. But he faces aversion not only from his religious sect who believes that all art is a waste of time, but also from his parents. Asher will do anything to claim his right to use his talents and pursue an artistic life.
My Name is Asher Lev runs from February 18 to March 5 at the Performing Arts and Recreation Center (PARC), San Juan, Metro Manila.
