Arena Stage in Washington, DC (November–December 2018)
Max Wolkowitz ’09 starred as Sholem Asch/Eugene O’Neill in the Helen Hayes Award–nominated production of Paula Vogel’s Indecent at Arena Stage in Washington, DC, Kansas City Rep, and Baltimore Center Stage. Reviewing the play, The Washington Post wrote, “Indecent is Paula Vogel’s eloquent account of art happening against all odds. By the time the portrait is complete, you can expect to have been stirred deeply by the moving facet of human aspiration it celebrates, to speak the truth in a time and place allergic to it. It’s not a festive evening, mind you, in Arena Stage’s Kreeger Theater. Director Eric Rosen has assembled a hauntingly absorbing incarnation of Vogel’s Tony-nominated play, which had a too-short run on Broadway last year. Indecent may be too austere for a healthy commercial run these days, but it is still well suited to a home such as Arena, where a ready-made audience exists for a serious story exploring the consequences of illuminating love in all its permutations.” (Photo credit: C Stanley Photography)
