About Indecent

Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel’s captivating new play with music took Broadway by storm and now Rebecca Taichman recreates her Tony Award-winning production for Boston audiences.

Inspired by the true story of Sholem Asch’s controversial Broadway debut "God of Vengeance" — a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture and by others as an act of traitorous libel — and the passionate artists who risked their lives to perform it. "Indecent" is a riveting and richly theatrical backstage drama, a fierce indictment of censorship, and a celebration of art and love.
