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

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 the smoking of cocoa shell cigarettes (100% nicotine free).
