What is the Story of Forbidden Broadway: Comes Out Swinging ?
Forbidden Broadway does not have a linear plot but rather pokes fun at Broadway shows and stars in short scenes much in the vein of Saturday Night Live. An off-Broadway staple, Forbidden Broadway has been around for 30 years and Alive & Kicking marks the 21st edition of the show.

"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."


Erik Haagensen

"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."
