Why See Indecent?
Winner Of Two Tony Awards
Indecent takes you behind the scenes of one of the most controversial works of the 20th Century. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive), this startling drama centers on the New York premiere of Sholem Asch's God of Vengeance in 1923. Set in a brothel and featuring a lesbian love story, the show caused an uproar, and was almost immediately shuttered and the creators put on trial for obscenity. A witty exploration of shifting social mores and artistic expression, Indecent is a play for our time.
Following an acclaimed Off-Broadway run, Indecent premiered on the main stem in 2017, and won two Tony Awards, including Best Direction.
Opening night: 4 June 2019
Recommended for ages 13+ for mature themes.

Lackawanna Blues, a childhood reminiscence written and performed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, has the feel of a new writer finding his way, telling the kind of personal story that tends to trumpet the self.
