More Off-Broadway

Dear Friends,

We wanted to share with you another comedy appearing Off-Broadway this fall.

It is School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play, which is a story of teenage girls in Ghana.

It is “buoyant and biting comedy [that] explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe.”  It is written by Jocelyn Bioh and directed by Tony Awarding Winner Rebecca Taichman.

Indecent on Broadway

Dear Friends,

In continuing our Summer Series, this week’s recommendation is Indecent.

Indecent, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, is based on the real-life events surrounding the 1923 Broadway debut of God of Vengence by Sholem Asch.  It is directed by Rebecca Taichman, who won a Tony Award for Best Director and is currently playing at the Cort Theatre with extended performances until August 6th.

Charles Isherwood of the New York Times calls the play a “superbly realized production…[and] sheds an eye-opening light on a little-known time when theatrical history, Jewish culture and the frank depiction of homosexuality intersected, with explosive results.”  You can read the full review here.
