Whether you're a seasoned theatre-goer or new to Broadway, Forbidden Broadway
is your one-stop ticket to non-stop laughs.
History: In 1982 an unemployed actor, Gerard
Alessandrini, wanted a showcase for his talents. He decided to assemble some of
the musical parodies of Broadway shows he had written since childhood into a
nightclub act. Critics and audiences were wowed and it has since become New
York’s longest running musical comedy revue.
Updated regularly, Forbidden Broadway has had several
editions, countless revisions, three New York City performance spaces, several
national and international tours, and thousands of special performances.
Looking back at Forbidden Broadway provides an informal and very funny history of the American musical theatre. It has remained one of the funniest evenings on or Off-Broadway.
As long as Broadway and Hollywood exist, there will be a Forbidden, poking, prodding, teasing, pleasing, jeering and cheering, but always with love.
