BEST NEW OFF-BROADWAY PLAY ~ Outer Critics’ Circle Award

This huge hit, still running Off-Broadway, tells the powerful story of a young student in post-WWII Brooklyn who is torn between his Hasidic upbringing and the desperate need to fulfill his artistic promise ~ against the will of family, community and tradition. A stirring adaptation of a modern classic, it presents a heartbreaking and triumphant vision of what it means to be an artist.
