The story, acting and presentation were superb. Occasionally there were acoustical problems when players had their back to the audience.

Description

Adapted and directed by Aaron Posner

Based upon the novel by Chaim Potok

Designed by Jim Kronzer, Nancy Schertler, James Sugg and Kate Turner Walker

Featuring Rick Foucheux, Edward Gero and Aaron Davidman with Derek Thompson and Joshua Morgan

The much beloved story of two boys, two fathers, and two very different Jewish communities in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Aaron Posner’s award-winning adaptation introduces us to two passionate, intelligent 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. Theater J is thrilled to offer this 10th anniversary staging of its hit production as Arena Stage’s first local guest company in residence.

About the Ticket Supplier: Arena Stage

Arena Stage today stands as a flagship American theater. Arena Stage was one of the first not-for-profit theaters in the United States, as well as a pioneer of the regional theater movement. It was the first regional theater to transfer a production to Broadway, the first invited by the U.S. State Department to tour behind the Iron Curtain, and the first to receive a Tony Award. Taking a leadership role in extending theater’s horizons, Arena Stage has implemented groundbreaking policies and programs, promoting diversity in all aspects of theater, from theatergoing to production.

The Arena Stage legacy of world-class productions includes vast epics, charged dramas, rousing musicals, and probing profiles. From the monumental to the developmental, Arena Stage has helped build the canon of American theater. While they produce American classics, Arena Stage premieres new American plays and supported works in progress. They’ve nurtured artistic growth and engaged the community, broadening and intensifying the theatrical experience for one and all. And yet, in spite of it all, in their second half-century they see themselves as more fresh, restless and dynamic than ever.
