‘Indecent’ & ‘Come from Away’

On April 8, 2017 by Theater Talk Web

Playwright Paula Vogel discusses the odyssey of her new play, Indecent, to Broadway and the backstory of the play within Indecent, Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance, which was closed down on Broadway (and the cast arrested) 93 years ago for its portrayal of a lesbian kiss.

Next up, we welcome the creative team from the new musical Come From Away, composer/librettist/lyricists David Heinand Irene Sankoff, with director Christopher Ashley (pictured, left to right). In addition, Broadway favorite Jenn Colella performs a key number, “Me and the Sky,” from the critically acclaimed show.

    I was intrigued by the interview with Paula Vogel. I wasn’t aware of the history of “Indecent,” and, though it might be somewhat of an acquired taste for me to see, I just want to note that I did see her work, “How I Learned to Drive” back in 1997 at the Vineyard Theater with Bruce Davison and Molly Ringwald and I enjoyed the production. I was glad to get a snipped of “Come from Away” as well, as tickets have been hard to get!
