New in 2017 A new drama that follows the history of a controversial Broadway play and the artists that risked everything to perform it. Begins April 4th.
From the producers: "Indecent" follows the incredible journey of a controversial piece of theater and the passionate artists who risked their lives to perform it. This riveting and richly theatrical backstage drama is a celebration of art and tradition, a fierce indictment of censorship and a gripping look at an explosive moment in history.
The story of "Indecent" is inspired by the real-life controversy surrounding the 1923 Broadway production of Sholem Asch's "God of Vengeance," the love story of two women. The reaction to Asch's work was divided between those who considered it to be groundbreaking and by others as traitorous. Here's a trailer from the Off Broadway production at Vineyard Theatre:
"Indecent" had its world premiere in October 2015 at Yale Repertory Theatre. The play then enjoyed an acclaimed run Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in spring 2016. Author Paula Vogel won the Pulitzer Prize for her play "How I Learned to Drive." This production of "Indecent" marks her Broadway debut.
