Playwright Paula Vogel discusses the odyssey of her new play, "Indecent," to Broadway and the backstory of the play within "Indecent," Sholem Asch's "God of Vengeance," which was closed down on Broadway (and the cast arrested) 93 years ago for its portrayal of a lesbian kiss.
Next up, the creative team from new original musical "Come From Away" - composer/librettist/lyricists David Hein and Irene Sankoff, with director Christopher Ashley - discuss telling a story of kindness and generosity when a Newfoundland community embraced nearly 7,000 passengers from airplanes diverted from U.S. airspace on September 11, 2001. In addition, Broadway favorite Jenn Colella performs a key number, "Me and the Sky," from the critically acclaimed show.
