BWW Review: INDECENT at the Guthrie Photo BWW Review: INDECENT at the Guthrie
by Karen Bovard - Feb 28, 2018

INDECENT is a play about a play: Sholom Asch's GOD OF VENGEANCE, first performed in 1907 in Berlin, then widely across Europe, and eventually in 1923 in New York. There it was censored and the acting troupe was arrested and jailed. It's also about how writers work, about forbidden love, about family, about being an immigrant to the US who speaks with an accent, about Yiddish theater and changing tastes on Broadway, about McCarthyism, and, yes, about the Holocaust.

BWW Reviews: The Guthrie's TRIBES Reminds Us to Really Listen
by Noah Lee Jordan - Oct 12, 2013

How often do we take for granted our sense of hearing? Our human existence is so intricately connected with the world of sound--from music, to movies, to simply talking on the phone to a loved one--when left without sound, most people might feel lost, painfully alone, or even go insane. Imagine now, if you lived in a world of constant silence and sound never even existed--at least for you. This is Billy's world.

John McGinty, Stephen Schnetzer & More Star in TRIBES, Beginning Tonight at Guthrie Theatre

The Guthrie Theater begins its production of Nina Raine's Tribes tonight, October 5.
