Guthrie Theater announced that it will be presenting the first post-Broadway production of Paula Vogel's Indecent February 17-March 24, 2018, at the Wurtele Thrust Stage.

Wendy C. Goldberg, artistic director of the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference, will direct the production, with the cast and creative team to be announced later.

Indecent is currently playing on Broadway at the Cort Theatre until August 6.

This play with music was inspired by the controversial Broadway debut of Sholem Asch's play God of Vengeance. Some saw Asch's play as a seminal work of Jewish culture, while others saw it as an act of traitorous libel.

Indecent transferred to Broadway after a production at the Vineyard Theatre that ran off-Broadway in 2016 in association with La Jolla Playhouse and Yale Repertory Theatre. The current Broadway production, which received a 2017 Tony nomination for Best Play, marks the Broadway debuts of Vogel and Rebecca Taichman. Taichman won Tony, Outer Critics Circle, and Obie Awards for her direction, while Christopher Akerlind won a Tony for his lighting design, and David Dorfman won a Lortel Award for his choreography. Vogel was honored by the New York Drama Critics Circle and received a Lifetime Achievement Obie.
