Auditions

Max & Louie Productions Announce EQUITY and NON-EQUITY Auditions for “INDECENT”
Written by Paula Vogel and conceived by Rebecca Taichman and Paula Vogel

THE STORY: INDECENT, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel, is a deeply moving play 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 charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
