My Name is Asher Lev
On November 7, 2015 my husband and I along with our friends decided to attend the play “My Name is Asher Lev”, performed at the Jewish Community Center.
We had read the book many years ago and were anxious to see the performance. The Jewish Repertory Theatre puts on several productions a year in this very intimate room in which every seat offers an excellent view.
The actors Tom Zindle, Adam Yellen and Josie DiVincenzo did an amazing job portraying many characters in the play and
continued non-stop for an hour and half both entertaining, educating and impressing the audience.
Their performances captivated the audience from start to finish and took us to a time long ago when Jewish people were expected to act a certain way and to comport themselves accordingly, if they
were to be practicing and respectable Orthodox Jews.
They portrayed the inner struggle within their family and themselves that kept you drawn into their lives during the entire performance.
We are so lucky to have such fine actors in our area who make it affordable to enjoy the arts in Buffalo.
