Between friends

THE CHOSEN Adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok from Potok’s 1967 novel, this play flashes back to 1940s Brooklyn, where two Jewish teenagers — Danny, who’s Hasidic, and Reuven, who’s not — become best friends and try to remain so as World War II ends, the enormity of the Holocaust is revealed, the new state of Israel emerges, and their fathers take opposite positions. The play is about growing up and overcoming differences, but it’s also about learning to listen, and this production encourages us to do just that. Pictured: Joel Colodner, Zachary Eisenstat, Luke Murtha, and Charles Linshaw. Through Nov. 17. Lyric Stage Company. 617-585-5678, Jeffrey Gantz
