Paula Vogel's acclaimed drama Indecent will move to Broadway this spring, producers Daryl Roth, Elizabeth Ireland McCann, and Cody Lassen have announced. The work will open April 18 at a Shubert-owned venue to be determined, with previews set to begin earlier that month.

Cocreated and directed by Rebecca Taichman, the play with music is 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. It played an extended off-Broadway run at Vineyard Theatre earlier this year and was presented in association with La Jolla Playhouse and Yale Repertory Theatre.

Casting is still set to be announced. The off-Broadway company was 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). Vogel's play features music composed by Lisa Gutkin, with choreography by David Dorfman.
