Cherry Creek Theatre and Mizel Arts and Culture Center present: My name is Asher Lev
Written by: Aaron Posner
Adapted from the novel by Chaim Potok
Directed by: Bernie Cardell
Presented by: Cherry Creek Theatre
Torn between his Hasidic upbringing and the need to fulfill his artistic promise, Asher Lev is caught between two worlds. Relationships with his parents, community and mentor are all on the line as the prodigy realizes he must make a difficult choice between art and faith. This adaptation of Chaim Potok’s stirring novel presents a heartbreaking and triumphant vision of identity and what it means to be an artist.
Created from the vision of a group of Cherry Creek North residents in early 2010, Cherry Creek Theatre debuted in the Denver theatre scene in 2011 with its first production, A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters. After six successful seasons at the Shaver-Ramsey Gallery in Cherry Creek North, Cherry Creek Theatre moved to a permanent home in the Mizel Arts & Culture Center’s Pluss Theatre at the Staenberg-Loup Jewish Community Center in 2017. Cherry Creek Theatre is proud to bring quality, thought-provoking, professional theatre to the Denver-metro area.
