While we are all entitled to our own opinions, I think asserting that Vogel's main contribution to American theatre has been as a teacher of presumably better playwrights (Sarah Ruhl? Really?) is condescending to say the least. "How I Learned to Drive" was revolutionary in its day and still is powerful in its exploration of incest and sexual exploitation; her riff on Wilder, "The Long Christmas Ride Home" is a serious and important play, as well. Tastes vary, but to suggest she has not made her mark on dramatic literature--even if "Indecent" may not measure up (haven't seen it, but hope to soon)--is a bit risible to me.
