One of the most highly anticipated new shows of the season, Gerard Alessandrini’s Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging! begins previews Monday, March 17 at the newly refurbished Davenport Theatre (354 West 45th Street – between 8th and 9th Avenue). The show is set to open on Sunday, May 4th. This up-to-the-minute new edition will include Alessandrini’s takes on Kinky Boots, Matilda, Rocky, Cabaret, The Bridges of Madison County, Aladdin, Pippin, the turntable-less Les Miserábles, Motown, The Sound of Music Live! and Bullets Over Broadway, among others.
Gerard Alessandrini said, “We’re having a particularly fun time with this one, because the edition is being created as the season unfolds, and the show is changing nightly! We’re going to have our Opening Night just a few days after the Tony nominations are announced, so it’s a very exciting time to be putting this together.”
Forbidden Broadway has been an unstoppable force in theatre since 1982, when Gerard Alessandrini created the first edition that lampooned the Broadway shows and stars of the day who often stop by to laugh at themselves alongside the public. Forbidden Broadway has won numerous awards in its history including a 2006 Tony® Honor, Drama Critics’ Circle, Obie, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, and Lucille Lortel Awards.
