Uncensored Director's Cut of INDECENT Will be Available on BroadwayHD Late January
When Indecent aired on PBS's Great Performances it was missing some of the elements that helped it earn the 2017 Tony Award for Best Direction. Ironically, a play with a deep history of censorship, one that was put on trial for obscenity, was once again too provocative to be seen as intended. Now, for the first time ever outside of the Cort Theatre, it can be seen completely uncensored when it comes to BroadwayHD.
Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel and directed by Tony winner Rebecca Taichman, Indecent is about the love and passion to create theatre, even in the most difficult of circumstances. The play follows a troupe of actors, the cast of Sholem Asch's God of Vengeance, who risked their lives and careers against enormous challenges to perform a work in which they deeply believed, at a time when art, freedom and truth were on trial. It is a story told with compassion and honesty, but also with great theatricality, and joyous songs and dances.
This comprehensive production will include language and scenes too risqué for broadcast television that were captured by 8 high-definition cameras at Broadway's Cort Theatre by BroadwayHD in association with Thirteen Productions LLC for WNET. The show is directed for television by Emmy-award winner David Horn. It will stream on BroadwayHD for subscribers starting on January 25.
