the chosen

See The Chosen at Playhouse in the Park from April 13 through May 12.

How can two directly opposing ideas exist together? Chaim Potok’s classic novel intimately explores such complex and thought-provoking questions in a moving adaptation for the stage.

It’s 1940s Brooklyn, where two Jewish boys, Reuven and Danny, are both immersed in the religious instruction of their fathers and the traditions of their disparate communities. They live five blocks from each other but are a world apart. However, fate plays its hand in the strangest ways and forges a life-changing friendship as they grow into adulthood.

This hugely popular adaptation — often selling out theatres across the US — is a heartfelt exploration of Jewish culture and the human ability to reach out across differences.


The Chosen is recommended for teenage and adult audiences. As Reuven and Danny navigate adolescence and young adulthood, they and their fathers discuss complex themes and ideas regarding the Jewish faith, world affairs of the 1940s, and other mature issues.
