Opening July 5 and running to July 28, Gerard Allesandrini’s FORBIDDEN BROADWAY - GREATEST HITS hits the boards at Roxy’s.
The show, which opened in 1982 and has been rewritten over a dozen times, the show spoofs Broadway musicals, their composers, stars, choreographers, directors and even the tunes themselves. Targeting shows like Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Wicked, Annie, Hairspray, Mamma Mia among others and taking aim at stars like Carol Channing, Idina Menzel, Liza Minelli, John Travolta and Ethel Merman the production parodies and pokes fun at lyrics, plot and voices.
Nailing the excesses of several theatre seasons Forbidden Broadway skewers and takes down every musical theatre’s love with impersonations, clever lyrics and amazingly talented vocals.
Starring, Julia Faust, Seth Knowles, John Keckeisen Shaun-Michael Morse, Patty Reeder, and Christine Tasheff. The show is directed by Rick Bumgardner, with sets and sound design by Scott Olney, costumes by Dora Arbuckle, and lighting by Arthur Reese.
Roxy’s opens the doors at 6:30 for evening performances at 8pm on both Friday and Saturday evenings of the show.
