About Forbidden Broadway
Forbidden Broadway is a humorous “roast” of Broadway classics presented cabaret style. The hilarious and entertaining current performance spoofs theater favorites such as The Book of Mormon, Les Miserables, Kinky Boots, Pippin and Matilda. The performance is made up of a series of parodies of contemporary Broadway blockbusters that keeps up with today’s trends in entertainment.
Tickets for this not-to-be-missed show taking the stage at the celebrated McCallum Theatre of Palm Desert are available on StubHub.
Created by writer and director Gerard Alessandrini, who was also a member of the original cast, Forbidden Broadway debuted in 1982 and has delivered laughs to thousands of audience members across the ensuing decades.
Forbidden Broadway’s offbeat humor wowed judges as well as audiences, earning an Obie, Special Tony, Drama Desk and Drama League awards.
The play has been re-written over a dozen times by director Gerard Alessandrini to encompass current Broadway favorites in his parodies of theater’s popular shows. The caricatures cover such famous Broadway beloveds as The Lion King, Rent, Wicked and Newsies.
Alessandrini, with his cutting, accurate and hard-hitting humor, allows both the performance community and audiences a space to be entertained as they poke good-hearted fun, in the spirit of every good roast.
The plots, characters and music satirized by Alessandrini’s four-person cast (two men and two women) are not the only targets of the satire—famous performers such as Dustin Hoffman, Elton John, Liza Minnelli, and Barbra Streisand have also found themselves the focal points of Forbidden Broadway and its sister program Forbidden Hollywood’s relentless humor.
This musical parody’s unique humor has appealed to audiences in over 200 cities across the nation, and as far abroad as cities such as London and Singapore.
