BroadwayWorld brings you photos from opening night below!

Performances begin Thursday, May 30, 2013 and will continue through Sunday, June 16, 2013 in the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre at the Abingdon Theatre Arts Complex (312 West 36th Street). Opening night is Friday, May 31, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.

Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde is an incredibly important and relevant piece of theatre that uses first-hand accounts of the 1895 Oscar Wilde trials to examine the origins of the homosexual identity and the male identity and questions where, how, and if they intersect in historical and contemporary discourse. Through the compilation of diaries, court records, news sources, and more, Kaufman has created for us a fast-paced portrayal of Wilde's fall from fame and the bigger social repercussions that followed. This production will use various styles of movement and music in a collaborative rehearsal process to discover the timelessness of Wilde's story and how it still functions with and relates to our social climate today.
