By Paula Vogel
Directed by Meghan Randolph, Music Direction by Mark Wurzelbacher, Choreography by Brian Cowing
This Tony-Award winning piece by Pulitzer Prizer-winner Paula Vogel tells the story of a Yiddish play called "God of Vengeance," its controversial 1923 Broadway debut, what led up to it, and what followed. With its powerful tale of a Jewish father and a beautiful love scene between two women, some saw "God of Vengeance" as a seminal work of Jewish culture. Others saw it as an act of traitorous libel, speaking out against the play during its Broadway run, which eventually led to the actors being charged with obscenity.
Using an ensemble of seven actors and three musicians, INDECENT imagines the story of the people who fought for love, identity, and art, refusing, in a terrifying time, to be silenced.
