Video: Behind the Scenes of Indecent


Indecent tells the story of the making of God of Vengeance, which opened on Broadway in 1923. Because of an iconic scene depicting love between two women, the play was immediately shut down, and everyone involved was tried for obscenity and thrown in jail. This play about love, free speech, and the importance of art is a perfect play for audiences in 2017. It's a massive story to tell, and it's told through song and movement and dance in just 90 minutes

In the video below, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel and director Rebecca Taichman take us on a journey behind the scenes of the play's creation. Viewers can take a look into rehearsals for the play and hear about what inspired the story. Indecent begins Broadway performances on April 4, 2017.
