Directed by Rebecca Taichman, Paula Vogel's new play Indecent is inspired by the controversial Broadway debut of Sholem Asch's 1923 play God of Vengeance, which some saw it as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and others as an act of traitorous libel. At a recent press event for the new work's Broadway debut, the show's cast talked about the history in the play and explained what it means for today.
