FORBIDDEN BROADWAY to Play San Jose REp, 2/26-3/2
The side-splitting savagery known as Forbidden Broadway is on the road again with their newest edition, ALIVE and KICKING, proving the enduring appeal of the show's wicked, wicked ways. In a limited engagement, San Jose Repertory Theatre presents six performances February 26 through March 2.
The madly inventive Gerard Alessandrini returns with his scathing homage to Broadway's biggest shows and brightest stars. Now celebrating its record-breaking 31th year in New York, this year's roasts include Book of Mormon, Once (is enough), and new looks at old favorites Les Miz, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and Chicago. Rounding out the laughs are Rock of Ages and Jersey Boys; with lots more Broadway past and present.
"I can't think of another special offering that our audiences will love more than the latest edition of the satirical and hilarious Forbidden Broadway," said Rick Lombardo, Producing Artistic Director. The last time Forbidden Broadway was here our audiences raved about how funny the show was. I'm excited to bring back the touring show with their fresh skewer of the Great White Way."
Forbidden Broadway is the recipient of the 2006 Tony Award for Excellence in Theatre, an Obie Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, and the 2005 Drama Desk Award for Best Off Broadway Musical.
