Winner of numerous awards including an acclaimed Tony-winning run on Broadway, “Indecent” by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel, is the true story of a groundbreaking scandalous play and the courageous artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
After a rapturous reception in Europe, Sholem Asch's drama, "God of Vengeance" debuted on Broadway in 1923 at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America. This revolutionary love story, that celebrated Yiddish language and unconventional passion, was forced from the stage by a fearful and reactionary public. Its fate, and that of the actors who cherished it even as they confronted the horrors of the Nazi onslaught, are the subject of “Indecent.”
Seven actors and three musicians play a myriad of roles across continents and decades. This collage of riveting theater, glorious music, exuberant dance and poetry is a heart-stirring affirmation of the transformative impact of love and art in an era of chaos that seems timelier than ever before.
“Terrific! A powerful new play.” – Ben Brantley The New York Times
“…marvelous…the kind of insight and emotional depth that comes from theater at its most poetic." - Roma Tore NY1
“Has there ever been anything quite like “Indecent,” a play that touches — I mean deeply touches — so much rich emotion about history and the theater, anti-Semitism, homophobia, censorship, world wars, red-baiting and, oh, yes, joyful human passion? It’s a gripping and entertaining show with laughter and tears and a real rainstorm in which two women re-enact what, in 1921, had been the first lesbian kiss on an American stage.”- Linda Winer Newsday
