Indecent is a new play inspired by the true story of the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance. Written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Paula Vogel, and set at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America, this play with music is a riveting look at an explosive moment in theatrical history.
