This show is created and written by Gerard Alessandrini, and directed by Mr. Alessandrini and Phillip George, with musical direction by David Caldwell, and additional dialogue by Phillip George.

Rice, Carol Ostrow, Paxton Quigley, Robert Driemeyer, Jamie deRoy, Lawrence Poster and Tweiss Productions.

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. It has been a favorite among theatre lovers, as well as the Broadway stars themselves (Carol Channing, Angela Lansbury, Patti LuPone, Stephen Sondheim, Raul Esparza, Tyne Daly, Christine Ebersole, Bernadette Peters, Whoopi Goldberg Cameron Mackintosh, and Hal Prince, to name a few) who often stop by to laugh at themselves alongside the public. Forbidden Broadway has won numerous awards in its history including a Special Tony Award as well as Drama Critics' Circle, Obie, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, and Lucille Lortel Awards. A theatrical institution, Forbidden Broadway has received national and international notoriety having performed in over 200 US cities as well as engagements in Tokyo, Singapore, Sydney and London's Meniere Chocolate Factory.
