"Overall, this is important theater that sheds light on why we make theater in the first place, and why supporting it is so important, especially in difficult times."

"A spectacularly performed, directed, designed hour and forty-five minutes of live theater at its most innovative, Indecent is guaranteed to have you up on your feet and cheering its multitude of theatrical wonders."

"It is not to be missed... All his life Asch stood for tolerance, culture and compassion. All of those qualities are celebrated in Indecent, a play that is a testament to his courage and stature as a man."

"What is so striking about Indecent, the Paula Vogel play that opened Sunday at the Ahmanson, is not just that it tackles lesbianism head-on, but that it does so by tackling so much more. It burrows deep emotionally to come up with the approbation of our most inalienable and fundamental passion: the fulfillment of love found, accepted and unjudged."

"Everything and everyone involved in this production pays respectful homage to Paula Vogel, whose incredible script, as Sholem Asch originally intended so many, many years ago, speaks of the necessity of Jews to honestly and unapologetically show ourselves to be as flawed and complex as anyone who throughout the centuries has hated us for who we are as we all collectively struggle for a foothold on this risky planet."

"Directed by the woman for whom the original historical events became a passion, Tony winner Rebecca Taichman does a brilliant job of helming the story within the context of the multiple environmental factors surrounding these characters – including immigration, World War II, the Holocaust, anti-Semitism, censorship, and a love unacceptable for its time. ...INDECENT interweaves music, dance, and the many expressive levels inherent in this production into a resounding whole. This is a not-to-be-missed production."

"...“Indecent” is subtle, relying on subtext where needed, though providing directness and visualization where needed. The superb acting is subtle. The exquisite designs are subtle."

"The love “Indecent” bears toward “God of Vengeance” is sometimes tendentious. But in delving into the reactions to Asch’s work, Vogel and Taichman detect the dangerous currents that gave rise to 20th century atrocities. And in the beauty of this “little Jewish play,” director and dramatist find artistic redemption from historical erasure."
