Not dissimilar to "The Jazz Singer," this story about an orthodox Jew who wants to become a painter is a well acted & directed adaptation of the Chaim Potak novel. Another hit for the Fountain Theater.

“Director Stephen Sachs has assembled a terrific trio of actors for his production, and he directs them with sensitivity and finesse.” – Arts in LA
“Jewish or not, this moving culturally diverse play, which runs through April 19th, 2014, is one that you don’t want to miss.” – LA Splash Magazine
“Well, the superb Fountain Theatre and its resident genius-in-chief, Stephen Sachs, have done it again. They’ve mounted a just-about-perfect production.” – Cynthia Citron Reviews
“A piercing play, one that any child who went outside their parents’ expectations will feel shattered after seeing. The three cast members are outstanding.” – Jonas Schwartz, TheaterMania
“Versatile Joel Polis and Anna Khaja practically disappear into their respective diverse roles on each side of the secular-orthodox divide … While Asher’s story embraces lofty social and religious themes, it unfolds in achingly personal terms.” – Los Angeles Times (Critic’s Pick)
