Literature at Lunch 

Join Gail Lipsitz at noon on March 23 (Please note: this is a new date.) for our next discussion of "INDECENT" a Play by Paula Vogel. Follow the true story of a play, a playwright, and a plucky troupe of Yiddish theater artists from 1906 Warsaw, to 1923 Broadway, to 1943 Lodz Ghetto in Poland, to 2017 Broadway. Sholem Asch's play "God of Vengeance" moved from risky experiment to global sensation—and ultimately shattering scandal. This is the story dramatized by Paula Vogel in her 2017 play, "Indecent." The latest hit from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of A Civil War Christmas, The Baltimore Waltz, and How I Learned to Drive, "Indecent" pays homage to artists ahead of their time and doomed to pay the price. Read and see this fascinating play, and bring your reactions to our discussion.
 
"Indecent" comes alive at Center Stage (including a klezmer band), directed by Eric Rosen, from February 28-March 31, 2019We highly recommend that you see the play before our meeting on March 23. To purchase tickets for "Indecent" at Center Stage click here.
