Indecent at the Cape Rep is Anything But

Indecent at the Cape Rep is Anything But

I have to begin this review with a caveat: nothing I can write will do justice to Indecent or to Cape Rep’s production of this “true story of a little Jewish play.” It may well be the most perfect thing I’ve ever seen on stage. There’s dancing. There’s music. There’s...
