Indecent on Broadway with NYC Cornellians and CUGALA

  • Cort Theatre 138 West 48th Street New York, NY, 10036 United States (map)

Join NYC Cornellians and CUGALA, Cornell’s LGBT Alumni Association, for Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and alumna Paula Vogel’s (MA ’76, PhD ’16) new play on Broadway. This event will be hosted by Associate Professor of Performing and Media Arts, Sara Warner, and Co-Producer of Indecent, Dana M. Lerner '14. Register today to gain access to the Cornell block, a preview, and post show chat with Professor Warner and Paula Vogel!

INDECENT is the new play with music from Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel (HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE), inspired by the true story of the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s GOD OF VENGEANCE about a Jewish family that lives above a brothel, hoping to gain respect by having their daughter marry into a prestigious family. Called “superbly realized and remarkably powerful” by The New York Times and hailed as one of the best plays of the year by critics, INDECENT charts the journey of an incendiary drama and the artists who risked their lives to perform it. Created by Vogel and director Rebecca Taichman (STAGE KISS), INDECENT is set at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America. This play with music is a riveting look at an explosive moment in theatrical history and comes to Broadway from its critically acclaimed, sold-out run at the Vineyard Theatre.
