Use code STAGE2 to get $10 tickets to next Tuesday night’s panel featuring Paula Vogel and Rebecca Taichman.*On February 19, 1923, New York theatergoers witnessed Broadway’s first lesbian kiss at the English-language premiere of God of Vengeance, a play by Polish-American writer Sholem Asch. Days later, the NYPD arrested the entire cast on obscenity charges. Asch’s provocative drama has inspired theater artists ever since – including author Paula Vogel, whose new play, Indecent, explores the controversy that erupted following the 1923 production. At this panel, we’ll discuss the radical possibilities of Yiddish theater.  #YiddishTheater
