Since its premiere in 1982, Forbidden Broadway
has enjoyed a multitude of productions up to the present day thanks to writer Gerard Alessandrini, who updates the revue to include each new batch of Broadway’s hits, ensuring that no show is safe, no matter how recent its appearance on the Great White Way.
Styled as a cabaret, the production spoofs Wicked
, The Book of Mormon
, Les Miserables
and many more, as well as familiar faces from the Broadway scene via spot-on cast impressions. Longtime fans of musical theater will find plenty to love, as the revue’s roasts amply reward those with an encyclopedic knowledge of the oeuvres of Sondheim, Schwartz and Larson.
