Despite an initial closure notice for June 25, producers of the Broadway transfer of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel's new play with music Indecent, co-created and directed by Rebecca Taichman, have now set a new closing date of August 6, 2017.

Producer Daryl Roth released the following statement:

"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. 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."

Previews began at the Cort Theatre on April 4, 2017, ahead of an official opening on April 18.

Synopsis: "Indecent is inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch's 'God of Vengeance,' a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel. Indecent charts the history of an incendiary drama and the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it."

The Broadway cast includes Katrina Lenk, Mimi Lieber, Max Gordon Moore, Tom Nelis, Steven Rattazzi, Richard Topol and Adina Verson.

The play features music composed and directed by Lisa Gutkin & Aaron Halva, along with choreography by David Dorfman. The creative team also features scenic design by Riccardo Hernandez, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Chris Akerlind, sound design by Matt Hubbs and projection design by Tal Yarden.

Indecent is produced on Broadway by Daryl Roth, Elizabeth Ireland McCann and Cody Lassen, in association with La Jolla Playhouse and Yale Repertory Theatre.

The original off-Broadway production began previews on April 27, 2016, before an official opening on May 17 and a limited engagement through to June 5, 2016 at the Vineyard Theatre.

The production marks the Broadway debut for playwright Paula Vogel, who won a Pulitzer Prize for 'How I Learned to Drive' in 1998.
