The original cast of Broadway's Indecent reunited to record the music for the Tony-nominated production, which featured original compositions by Lisa Gutkin and Aaron Halva, as well as the period songs that were heard throughout the production. The recording will be released on January 25 by Yellow Sound Label.

Indecent was written by Paula Vogel, created by Vogel and Rebecca Taichman, and directed by Taichman, who earned a Tony Award for her work on the production. Inspired by the 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch's drama God of Vengeance and the controversy that surrounded its themes of censorship, immigration, and anti-Semitism, Vogel's play explores the behind-the-scenes story of the courageous artists who risked their careers and lives to perform this piece of theater under the most challenging circumstances.

Indecent opened April 18, 2017 at Broadway's Cort Theatre and was produced on Broadway by Daryl Roth, Elizabeth Ireland McCann, and Cody Lassen, in association with Vineyard Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse, and Yale Repertory Theatre.

The recording will feature performances by original cast members Mimi Lieber, Katrina Lenk, Max Gordon Moore, Tom Nelis, Steven Rattazzi, Richard Topol, and Adina Verson, and musicians Matt Darriau (clarinet, bass clarinet, tin whistle), Gutkin (violin, mandolin, wood block), and Halva (accordion, baritone ukulele, piano, percussion). Lenk will also be featured on viola.
