"TERRIFIC! A powerful new play.”The New York Times

Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel’s captivating new play with music took Broadway by storm last year and now Rebecca Taichman recreates her Tony Award-winning production for Boston audiences. Inspired by the true story of Sholem Asch’s controversial play God of Vengeance and the passionate artists who risked their lives to perform it, this riveting and richly theatrical backstage drama is a fierce indictment of censorship and a joyful celebration of art and love.
