In a rare decision, the producers of “Indecent,” the Tony Award-winning play that describes the controversial mounting of Sholom Aleichem’s play in the 1920s, have decided to rescind their closing notice that would have shuttered the play in early July.
The decision has been made to keep the play running at the Cort Theatre in New York through August 6. Producers had announced the closing only days after picking up the Tony Award for Best Director (Rebecca Taichman) and a technical Tony Award.
Standing room only crowds answered the closing notice along with very positive word-of-mouth from audience members who praised the writing by Paula Vogel and other aspects of the play.
“There are shows that remind you of the reason we all fell in love with theatre in the first place, and ‘Indecent’ has been one of those shows for all of us involved with it. We have been thrilled that this show has affected audiences so profoundly during our Broadway run,” commented Daryl Roth, on behalf of the producers. “But since we announced our closing, the electricity of what is happening at the Cort has been profound. So it gives me great pleasure to extend the life of ‘Indecent’ for just a few more weeks on Broadway, to give theatregoers a little more time to see it before we pack up our suitcases for the final time on August 6.”
“Indecent” is produced on Broadway by Daryl Roth, Elizabeth Ireland McCann and Cody Lassen in association with Vineyard Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse and the Yale Repertory Theatre.
