Back by popular demand, The New York Times Critics' Pick returns for 14 performances, presented in the original Yiddish with English supertitles.

Explosive in its conflicted portrayal of Judaism, "God of Vengeance" tells the heart-wrenching story of a brothel owner's attempt to shepherd his daughter to religious observance and a respectable marriage, only to watch her plummet into the life of sin in which he raised her. The subject of Paula Vogel's "Indecent," the show is credited with presenting the first lesbian kiss on Broadway when its English adaptation premiered in 1923.
