INDECENT is about the evolution of the powerful play God of Vengeance (Got fun nekome) by acclaimed writer Sholem Asch; and the vibrant Yiddish Theatre of the early 1900s. Centering on a small band of intrepid Yiddish Theatre performers and klezmer musicians (klezmorim) - at times comical and at times poignant - they tell the story of how Asch’s social justice play was successfully performed in Europe and America. This led to its English language version at Broadway’s Apollo Theater. Opening on February 19, 1923, it was shut down on March 6 by city officials for depicting two women on stage, loving each other, as obscene and “indecent.”
