The Tony Award ® winning FORBIDDEN BROADWAY, Gerard Alessandrini’s hilarious musical spoof of all things theatre is returning to New York! After a five-year absence, this all-new edition, FORBIDDEN BROADWAY: THE NEXT GENERATION is gearing up for a 10-week limited engagement in New York at The Triad Theatre (158 West 72nd Street). Feeling “completely inspired” by the latest crop of Broadway musicals, Alessandrini will lampoon The Great White Way’s biggest shows and stars in this edition, which he is directing. Gerry McIntyre (Spamilton) is the choreographer. www.forbiddenbroadway.com

Alessandrini has been feverishly completing up-to-the- moment spoofs include Hadestown, Moulin Rouge, this season’s Oklahoma! revival, The Ferryman, Tootsie, Beetlejuice, Frozen, the Yiddish Fiddler on the Roof,, Dear Evan Hansen, What the Constitution Means to Me, and the new generation of Broadway stars including Ben Platt, Billy Porter, Santino Fontana, Karen Olivio, Alex Brightman and exciting turns by Bette Midler, Andre de Shields, Bernadette Peters, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and several surprises.

Featured in the cast are Immanuel Houston, Aline Mayagoitia, Chris Collins-Pisano, Jenny Lee Stern and Joshua Turchin, with Fred Barton on piano.

FORBIDDEN BROADWAY has been a theatrical institution since 1982, when Gerard Alessandrini created the first edition that lampooned the Broadway shows and stars of the day who often stop by to laugh at themselves alongside the public. FORBIDDEN BROADWAY has garnered international acclaim and awards that include 7 Drama Desks Awards, an Obie, a Drama League Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, 2 Lucille Lortel Awards and a Tony Award along the way.
