SPOOFING 31HIT BROADWAY MUSICALS IN 97 RIOTOUS MINUTES!
Created and Written by Gerard Alessandrini
One of the most highly acclaimed musical comedies ever descends upon Santa Barbara this June for a limited 10-performance run at The Granada. FORBIDDEN BROADWAY, starring members of the Award-winning New York cast, poking, prodding, teasing, pleasing, jeering and cheering hit Broadway musicals from yesterday and today on The Granada stage for what has been dubbed "one of the funniest evenings on or Off-Broadway!"
FORBIDDEN BROADWAY was first seen at Palsson's Supper Club on New York's Upper West Side in January 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.
