Created in 1982 by Alessandrini, Forbidden Broadway has since spawned 18 editions, eight cast recordings and a record-breaking 30-year-run in New York.

Forbidden Broadway has received a number of public accolades, including nine Drama Desk Awards, the 2005 Drama Desk Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, a Special Tony Award for Excellence in Theatre, an Obie Award and a Lucille Lortel Award. One of New York's longest running musical comedy revues, the show features outrageous costumes, rewrites of songs and dead-on impressions by a four-person cast and a pianist.
