Area Premiere

Inspired by the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance, this play with music by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel explores a troupe of Jewish immigrant actors who risked their lives and careers to perform at a time when art, freedom, and truth were on trial. Universally hailed as one of Broadway’s “Must-See Plays of 2017,” Indecent is a powerful and entertaining look at Yiddish theatre’s impact on Broadway and an explosive moment in theatrical history.

INDECENT is a rare gem of a play...a powerful story of immigration rights, censorship, anti-semitism, religious hypocrisy and LGBT themes converging in a play full of music and comedy.
