A backstage drama rich in heritage, Indecent, by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, is inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial play God of Vengeance. That production, which was embroiled in today’s hot-button issues of censorship, immigration, religious persecution, equality and art, toured Europe and New York to great acclaim…until it got to Broadway, where it was immediately condemned as “indecent” and the actors jailed. At great risk and enormous personal cost, the actors involved continued to perform it in the direst circumstances, as an affirmation of life. Staged in a vibrant, music-filled and visually-stunning production by Rebecca Taichman, Indecent is a glorious tribute to the transcendent power of art.
Uniformly praised by critics when it debuted Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre earlier this year, The New York Times said “Indecent is a terrific, powerful new play.” “A riveting drama,” wrote Variety. And Deadline called it “A fascinating work…a spellbinding evening.”
