Paula Vogel's thrilling drama follows the journey of a small theatre company as they tell us the story of Sholem Asch's controversial play, The God of Vengeance, from its origins in Poland 1907. The play achieved great success in Europe and the Yiddish theatre scene of downtown New York City. But when an English-translation was attempted on Broadway, it was too scandalous for the general public, and the entire cast was arrested and charged with obscenity. An all-star cast is directed by Lara Toner Haddock for Austin Playhouse, with musical direction by Lyn Koenning, and we've got Bob Abelman's full review right here.
