The Cort Theatre box office opens for business February 27 at noon for the Broadway debut of Indecent, the newest work by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel. The Cort is located at 138 West 48th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.

Producers Daryl Roth, Elizabeth Ireland McCann, and Cody Lassen previously announced that the entire original Off-Broadway cast of Vogel's Indecent will travel to Broadway when the production begins previews at the Cort April 4 prior to its official opening April 18.

The new play with music is written by Vogel, created by Vogel and Rebecca Taichman, and directed by Taichman.

The cast comprises Katrina Lenk, Mimi Lieber, Max Gordon Moore, Tom Nelis, Steven Rattazzi, Richard Topol, and Adina Verson. Joining the Broadway company will be Ben Cherry, Andrea Goss, and Eleanor Reissa.

The cast has been performing the play together for more than two years during its development with the Sundance Theater Institute and Oregon Shakespeare Festival, followed by productions at Yale Rep, La Jolla Playhouse, and the Vineyard Theatre, where Indecent had its NYC debut last summer.

Indecent features music composed by Lisa Gutkin and Aaron Halva, and is inspired by the real-life controversy surrounding the 1923 Broadway production of Sholem Asch's God of Vengeance, the love story of two women.

In 1923, the reaction to Asch’s work was divided between those who considered it to be groundbreaking and by others as traitorous. “Indecent charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it,” state press notes.
