Broadway on Screen: ‘Indecent’ premieres in Sedona Feb. 11


The Tony Award-winning play “Indecent” is inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of 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.

“Indecent” is inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of 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. The play charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.

“It is like having fifth row orchestra seats to the best theatrical productions from Broadway,” said festival director Patrick Schweiss. “Experience these grand, phenomenal stage productions from New York from the best seats in the house — right here in Sedona!”

“Indecent” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 4 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members.
