Madeline Scotti, who was set to perform in a production of ‘Indecent’ before the show was canceled by the Duval County (Florida) School Board, will hold a post-show talkback in West Hartford on Feb. 11.
“Indecent” by Paula Vogel is running at Playhouse on Park through Feb. 26, 2023. Madeline Scotti was set to play the Ingenue in her high school (Douglas Anderson School of the Arts)’s production of “Indecent” when the show was banned by her school board. Following the initial shutdown, Madeline uploaded an Instagram video detailing the censorship of “Indecent” and received an international audience, and she is now coming to West Hartford for a special post-show talk back on Saturday, Feb. 11 after the 8 p.m. performance of “Indecent.”

In “Indecent,” Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel tells the explosive and deeply moving story of the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Jewish playwright Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance – a play about a forbidden lesbian romance that enchanted and outraged audiences. We follow the path of the artists who risked their careers in order to perform it. It actively pays tribute to the Yiddish, immigrant families, Jews, theater makers, and the women, specifically the queer women, who are erased from historical narratives. Indecent is a riveting backstage drama filled with music, movement, groundbreaking theatre, and stage magic. Directed by Kelly O’Donnell. Music Direction by Alexander Sovronsky. Choreography by Katie Stevinson-Nollet.
After completing directing and dramaturgical work in the Douglas Anderson School of the Arts’ 22/23 season, Madeline Scotti looks forward to performing as NINA in her 6th production at D.A., The Seagull! She wants to thank the D.A. Theatre Department, Paula, Rebecca, Adina, and, of course, the entire theatre community for the endless support! From ashes we rise!
Tickets are now on sale for I”Indecent,” and range from $45-$55. Group rates available! Student and Senior discounts are also available. Learn more at www.playhouseonpark.org.
