Famed sex therapist and media personality Dr. Ruth Westheimer will be the special guest at a post-show talkback following a performance of Broadway's Indecent on May 30.

A play with music, Indecent was inspired by the controversial Broadway debut of Sholem Asch's 1923 play God of Vengeance. Some saw it as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and others as an act of traitorous libel. Directed by Rebecca Taichman, the Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel's new play began performances on April 4 at the Cort Theatre and opened on April 18.

The company is made up of Katrina Lenk (Once), Mimi Lieber (Act One), Max Gordon Moore (Relatively Speaking), Tom Nelis (The Visit), Steven Rattazzi (The Fourth Sister), Richard Topol (Fish in the Dark), and Adina Verson (Him). Co-composers Aaron Halva and Lisa Gutkin serve as the onstage band alongside Matt Darriau.

The production's creative team includes David Dorfman (choreographer), Riccardo Hernandez (scenic designer), Emily Rebholz (costume designer), Chris Akerlind (lighting designer), Matt Hubbs (sound designer), and Tal Yarden (projection designer).
