Feeling “completely inspired” by the latest crop of Broadway musicals, Alessandrini will lampoon The Great White Way’s biggest shows and stars in this edition, which he is directing.

“I feel like now is the perfect time,” says Gerard Alessandrini, who created the much-loved musical spoof in 1982, “Ever since Hamilton re-energized us, there’s been a deluge of great new shows of every type that I can have fun with. I haven’t been this excited about writing this show since the first Forbidden Broadway edition in 1982, when I had decades of productions to write about. Now I have a whole new palette in front of me.”
Alessandrini has been feverishly completing up-to-the- moment spoofs include Hadestown, Moulin Rouge, this season’s Oklahoma! revival, The Ferryman, Tootsie, Beetlejuice, Frozen, the Yiddish Fiddler on the Roof,, Dear Evan Hansen, What the Constitution Means to Me, and the new generation of Broadway stars including Ben Platt, Billy Porter, Santino Fontana, Karen Olivio, Alex Brightman and exciting turns by Bette Midler, Andre de Shields, Bernadette Peters, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and several surprises.
FORBIDDEN BROADWAY has been a theatrical institution 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 garnered awards that include 7 Drama Desks Awards, an Obie, a Drama League Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, 2 Lucille Lortel Awards and a Special Tony Award along the way.
