Manila, Philippines, July 17, 2012 – Upstart Productions (“Defending the Caveman,” "Breakups and Breakdowns”) brings back Off-Broadway smash “Forbidden Broadway” (Greatest Hits), a musical revue that parodies old and new Broadway musicals, at Carlos P. Romulo Theater, RCBC Plaza, Senator Gil Puyat Avenue, Makati City on Friday, August 24 and Saturday, August 25.

Forbidden Broadway” is a four-person show with two male actors (Lorenz Martinez, OJ Mariano) and two female actors (Caisa Borromeo, Liesl Batucan) playing multiple characters. Besides its musical numbers from popular Broadway shows, the intimate revue, which was conceived, written, and directed by Gerard Alessandrini, has also been endearingly mocking famous theater personalities since its 1982 debut at Palsson's Supper Club in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.  Alessandrini has recently announced that a new edition of “Forbidden Broadway” is set to premiere in New York City this fall and winter season.

In Manila, Joel Trinidad (“Crush Hour,” “Breakups and Breakdowns”) and Cathy Azanza-Dy (“Love, Loss and What I Wore”) direct Martinez, Mariano, Borromeo, and Batucan, plus a set of surprise celebrity guests.  Amusing parodies of “Chicago,” “Annie,” “Into the Woods,” “West Side Story,” “Wicked,” Les Miserables,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Mamma Mia,” “Rent,” “Spamalot,” “Cats,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Hairspray,” and “A Chorus Line,” are featured in the show.

For tickets and more information, call (63)920-9416695 (August 24, 8 p.m. and August 25, 3 p.m. shows), (63)926-6247899 (August 25, 8 p.m. show) or email upstarttickets@gmail.com.
