The final performance

This is the last weekend to attend Pittsburgh Public Theater’s Paula Vogel’s Tony Award-nominated play, “Indecent.” The final show is Sunday at the O’Reilly Theater, Downtown. The production is directed by Carnegie Mellon University graduate Risa Brainin. In the play, an ensemble of 10 actors and musicians follow the trajectory of Sholem Asch’s controversial “God of Vengeance,” the first play by a Jewish playwright to open on Broadway, a press release said. It was created in 1906 when the Yiddish writer was 26 years old.
