Indecent

By Paula Vogel

Directed by Susi Damilano

Music Direction by Dmitri Gaskin

Choreography by Nicole Helfer

Co-produced with Yiddish Theatre Ensemble

“An elegant tribute to things that vanish in the blink of a historical eye, ‘Indecent’ is a memorial that feels like a blessing.”  – Time Out

PLAY DETAILS

Indecent is based on the real-life events surrounding the scandalous Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s ‘God of Vengeance,’ considered to be a seminal work of Yiddish theatre by some, and a piece of traitorous libel by others. With a klezmer-infused score and filled with joyous songs and dances, this play charts the history of that incendiary work, the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it, and the evolving identity of the culturally rich community that inspired its creation. Co-Produced with Yiddish Theatre Ensemble.
