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. Set at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America, this play with music charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR! Remarkably powerful! Sheds light on a time when history, Jewish culture and the depiction of lesbian love explosively intersected! – New York Times
