Register for Jewish Theater: Script-reading, Guthrie Play and Discussion

February 22 and March 8

Come to Adath to read aloud Sholem Asch’s controversial 1907 play God of Vengeance on February 22.

Then attend the Guthrie Theater on March 8 to see the recent play Indecent by Paula Vogel, followed by a private discussion with Guthrie Senior Dramaturg Jo Holcomb.
Indecent, which debuted on Broadway this past spring, is a theatrical play with music, inspired by the 1923 Broadway debut of Asch’s God of Vengeance – a play that follows a Jewish brothel owner and the lesbian romance between his 17-year-old daughter and a prostitute. The modern play Indecent charts the journey of a drama upheld as a groundbreaking piece of Jewish literature by some, and an act of obscenity by others. An ensemble of eight plays klezmer music as well as nearly 40 roles to shed light on one of the most fascinating scandals in theater history.

Cost: $40
