Performing two shows only, Twisted Broadway will feature a lineup of talented Broadway artists performing songs that were originally written for the opposite gender as well as songs they always wanted to sing but couldn't because they would be miscast. The entertainment will also include parodies of some of Broadway's most popular shows.
