Looking to see the next big Broadway production? Look no further!

 

This past week I had the opportunity to see the Broadway play, Indecent. This show is based off of the true story of Sholem Asch’s play, God of Vengeance, from 1923. Written by Paula Vogel, Indecent is centered around the struggles of the playwright to express the concept of same sex lust, turned love, in his play.

 

            This show touches upon the reaction to controversial topics in relation to the time period. Two very controversial topics discussed in great detail in Indecent are, religion and same sex relationships. The shame placed upon these characteristics that make up one’s sense of being is expressed as well. I was in complete awe at the incredible acting throughout this production and how well developed the story was.

 

At first, I was unsure of what to expect when walking into the theatre. This show will, without a doubt, hit you in the feels; there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

 

Indecent is playing at The Cort Theatre on 138 W 48th Street; get your tickets now!
