Oct 20, 7:30 pm; Oct 21, 7:00 pm Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the most beloved novel about the American Jewish experience of the 20th century, this acclaimed stage adaptation of "The Chosen" is more timely than ever. Set in 1944 Brooklyn, it is a coming-of-age story of two observant Jewish boys who come from very different homes. When Reuven is injured by Danny during a heated baseball game, a unique friendship is born. As the boys grow to manhood, they are forced to learn important lessons about each other, their fathers and themselves.

Written by: Chaim Potok and Aaron Posner
