From the novel by Chaim Potok
Directed by Aaron Posner
A beautifully crafted play from the director/adapter of BSC's powerful, acclaimed 2011 production of My Name Is Asher Lev.
The Chosen tells the much-beloved story of two boys, two fathers, and two very different Jewish communities in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Set against the backdrop of World War II, Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok's award-winning adaptation introduces us to Reuven Malter and Danny Saunders, both passionate, intelligent young boys on opposite sides of a baseball game. When the game takes a turn, and Reuven is injured by Danny, a unique friendship is born. As the boys grow up, they learn important lessons about their fathers, their community and themselves.
Tickets start at $20; Low Priced Previews July 18-20 are $15 & $20.
