Menier Chocolate Factory Extends FORBIDDEN BROADWAY Through 30 August
Due to huge demand and critical acclaim, the Menier Chocolate Factory has announced that the run for its production of FORBIDDEN BROADWAY has been extended to Saturday, 30th August, 2014.
This updated version of the show showcases some of the best productions from both Broadway and the West End, including The Book of Mormon, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Once, Matilda, Wicked and Miss Saigon!
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 favourite among theatre lovers, as well as the Broadway stars themselves (Angela Lansbury, Kathleen Turner, Bernadette Peters, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Elaine Paige, Stephen Sondheim, Cameron Mackintosh, and Hal Prince among others), who often stop by to laugh at themselves alongside the public.
FORBIDDEN BROADWAY has won numerous awards in its history including the 2008 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical Revue, the Special Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theatre, six additional Drama Desk Awards, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Obie and Lucille Lortel Awards. A theatrical institution, FORBIDDEN BROADWAY has received national and international notoriety, racking up over 9,000 performances in more than 200 US cities as well as engagements in London (including the Chocolate Factory in 2009), Tokyo, Singapore and Sydney.
