In February 1923, audiences witnessed Broadway's first lesbian kiss at the English-language premiere of God of Vengeance, a play by Yiddish writer Sholem Asch. Days later, the NYPD Vice Squad arrested and prosecuted the entire cast on obscenity charges. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive) turned this true story into the acclaimed, Tony-winning Broadway production Indecent. Find out why The New York Times called Indecent "a superbly realized, remarkably powerful new play" in this production at Philadelphia's F. Otto Haas Theatre.

The biggest Broadway show since The Book of Mormon has hit the road on its first ever national tour! Written by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Lin Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is a true landmark of American culture, tearing up the musical theatre rulebook with a score that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., and a cast of ethnically diverse actors in the roles of the Founding Fathers. The story centers on Alexander Hamilton, one of our most important (and colorful) characters, who rose from his humble orphaned beginnings to play a major role in making America the country it is today.
