Indecent

Jan 20 - Feb 10 at Spencer Theatre

“A heart-stirring reminder of the power of art.” – Daily News

Paula Vogel’s deeply intimate, yet joyful and funny play is inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of God of Vengeance, a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture — and as an obscenity by others. Ultimately a love-letter, INDECENT charts one of the most fascinating scandals in theatre history.
