Unicorn "My Name is Asher Lev" review by Steve Wilson
One of the most dramatic plays to be presented in Kansas City opened Saturday night at the Unicorn Theatre.
“My Name is Asher Lev” by Aaron Posner, from the novel by Chaim Potok
and directed by Cynthia Levin is the story of an artist, an artist torn
between his desire to paint and his strict Jewish upbringing. Though
many of the terms used by the actors may be foreign to anyone not of the
Jewish faith, it is only a short time before the audience is able to
understand what is going on without looking at the sheet of glossary
words that accompany the Playbill.
