The musical known for spoofing the best of Broadway and beyond is back!
Comments from published critics
‘‘The show is for the most part sharper and funnier than ever, with delightfully wicked new material outnumbering a few oldies but goodies. The combination of Alessandrini’s racing wit and nimble lyrics, the inventively on-the-cheap physical production, and the shockingly talented cast makes 'Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking!' essential viewing for all theater lovers.’’
‘‘The Broadway community needs to be able to laugh at itself - and so do the theatergoers. 'Forbidden Broadway' is rather like a good-spirited antidote for both flops and successes that are taken too seriously. 'Forbidden Broadway' is most distinguished by Alessandrini's very witty and hilarious lyrics, which are seamlessly combined with the actual music from each show.’’
‘‘If you really love Broadway like I do, you'll adore the show that reams it a new one, then kicks it in the pants. Creator Gerard Alessandrini has struck comic gold with the pesky putdowns. Please see this hilarious show.’’
‘‘The constant theatergoer will of course bring a connoisseur’s relish to all this. But honestly you don’t have to know the, uh, score to enjoy 'Forbidden Broadway.' Good satire generates its own self-contained logic and infectious energy.’’
