About this show

Winner of two 2017 Tony Awards!

Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, Indecent was inspired by the 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch's God of Vengeance, in which a Jewish brothel owner learns of the lesbian romance between his 17-year-old daughter and a prostitute. Vogel's play with music charts the journey of Asch's controversial drama, which was upheld as a groundbreaking piece of Jewish literature by some and reviled as an act of obscenity by others. Eight actors play music as well as almost 40 roles to shed light on one of the most fascinating scandals in theater history.
