God of Vengeance - 2017 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$36-$65

Explosive in its conflicted portrayal of Judaism, "God of Vengeance" tells the heart-wrenching story of a brothel owner's attempt to shepherd his daughter to religious observance and a respectable marriage, only to watch her plummet into the life of sin in which he raised her. The subject of Paula Vogel's "Indecent," the show is credited with presenting the first lesbian kiss on Broadway when its English adaptation premiered in 1923.

What did our critic think of INDECENT at SF Playhouse? Co-Founders Bill English and Susi Damilano were obviously emotional on the eve of their 20th Anniversary Season opener, mentioning that Paula Vogel's Tony award-winning Indecent mirrors their intention of creating theatre that challenges audiences, exposes our humanity and opens minds. In what may be Susi's finest directorial work, Indecent soars with poignant imagery, gut-wrenching emotion, and thrilling performances. As a play about the creation of a play, it's an intimate portrayal of artistic expression, freedom, repression, and courage that ultimately uplifts the spirit.
