February 6, 7:30 PM- Play: INDECENT
By Pulitzer Prize Winner Paula Vogel. Joseph Adler, Producing Artistic Director, GableStage Theatre.
Inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of author Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance—a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel. Set at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America, this play charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.

Tickets for this performance are available for purchase in person or by phone through the Gablestage Box Office at a special price of $36 for our friends and $18 for students with valid student ID. For tickets, please call the Box Office, at 305-445-1119, Monday-Friday from 12:00 to 5:00pm.
