“Judy Award” BEST PRODUCTION OF A DRAMA “Indecent” directed by Joanne Gordon Max & Louie Productions
“Judy Award” BEST LIGHTING DESIGN IN A PLAY “Indecent” Patrick Huber Max & Louie Productions
Max & Louie Productions gave Paula Vogel’s heart-shattering “Indecent” its St. Louis premiere. Set mostly in Europe before World War Two, the play tells a fact-based story about a scandal that rocked the once-thriving Yiddish theater.
Of course, that whole world basically was wiped out, along with many of its performers and much of its audience. This highly theatrical production suited the subject matter – and demonstrated conclusively why projections, a relatively recent addition to the theater arts, can be as profoundly moving as sets, lighting, or even music.
