It's never been more fun poking fun at your favorite musicals and stars! The award-winning New York sensation featuring a talented cast of comic chameleons who perform hilarious parodies of Broadway's biggest hits at a dizzying pace, is coming to The Barnstormers. From to Phantom to Wicked, this fall-down funny, satirical roast of over 30 Broadway hits has outrageous costumes, silly spoofs of songs you know by heart and madcap impressions. Whether you are a seasoned theatre-goer or new to it all, the Tony Award winning Forbidden Broadway is your one-stop ticket to non-stop laughs.
