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.

Approximate run time: Indecent plays in approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, with no intermission. Please note: This production includes theatrical haze and the smoking of cocoa shell cigarettes (100% nicotine free).



Paula Vogel“What an honor to be in this lineup! I am always thrilled to be produced in a town where family and friends live, and always excited to be under Peter DuBois’ roof at the Huntington.” — Paula Vogel

 

 

Peter DuBois“Having Paula Vogel’s masterwork on our stage – in the hands of her Broadway collaborator, the brilliant Rebecca Taichman – is a remarkable moment for our theatre. What Paula has captured in the story moves the heart and sears the soul. She’s telling the story of a forgotten play – but she’s also telling the astonishing story of a people and of a complex time in our country. I’m proud that, with our colleagues at Center Theatre Group, we have recreated the acclaimed Broadway production of this piece and that Boston audiences will be among the lucky who get to see Paula’s remarkable play in its definitive staging.” — Peter DuBois
