Set in the 1950s, this is the story of a young Jewish painter torn between his Hassidic upbringing and his desperate need to fulfill his artistic promise. When his artistic genius threatens to destroy his relationship with his parents and community, young Asher realizes he must make a difficult choice between art and faith. This stirring adaptation of a modern classic presents a heartbreaking and triumphant vision of what it means to be an artist. Directed by Jennifer Stewar.
Faith…What we hold in the absence of proof. At Bluff City Theater, we are dedicating our 2018 Season to an examination of “Faith.” Each of us holds a system of beliefs that guide our lives-our decisions, our values, our relationships and our self-esteem. The 2018 season features five plays by five very different authors that highlight how faith has impacted the lives of the characters. Traditional faith in a higher power, or not, faith in oneself and the future, faith and its impact on families, faith in others and finally, the ultimate faith story updated to modern times. We’ve chosen two dramas, a farce, a historical biopic and a musical that you’re sure to find entertaining and out of the ordinary- hallmarks of the Bluff City Theater style. Our season runs from February to August 2018 and you can buy all five shows for a limited time for just $99!
