My Name is Asher Lev (sorry, Slim).
This spring, Miles returns to the motherland (Jersey) to play the title role in George Street Playhouse's production of My Name is Asher Lev. Adapted by Aaron Posner from the novel by Chaim Potok, it tells the story of a Hasidic Jewish boy turned artistic prodigy in post-WWII Brooklyn. Asher attempts to reconcile the irreconcilable in a classic culture clash of nature versus nurture. As a Jew (the G. is for Goodman), this piece is very close to Miles's heart — and he hopes to share it with yours.
Directed by Jim Jack, the show also features the incredible talents of Bob Ari (Frost/Nixon, Broadway) and Lena Kaminsky (Law and Order).
Previews begin 4/12. Opening is 4/15. And closing is 5/1.
