Broadway Alert: Forbidden Broadway Highly Recommended by Whom You Know Our Coverage Sponsored by Stribling and Associates
Forbidden Broadway is running now and is scheduled to be performed through April we understand, and you will be laughing from start to finish, even if you have not been to the Broadway shows spoofed. As this is technically Off-Broadway (though the performances are spot-ON), the theater is smaller than a regular Broadway theater which is better for every single audience member's vantage point you'll see as soon as you sit down. There's not a bad seat in the house.
Soon you be living Evita Loca (we particularly roared at her version of English for dummies) basking in the shining talent of each cast member and as the show goes on, the versatility of each respectively will blow you away. They all must be genetically engineered like the Energizer Bunny as well. We have no idea how they successfully pulled off so many costume changes so quickly and accurately but they each must have about five fairy godmothers. Musically we believe we heard some lovely Ella Fitzgerald songs and impersonations of Bernadette Peters and Stephen Sondheim were brilliant. Peachy was bursting when they did Mary Poppins, especially when they noted that it was just what people from Connecticut love! And guess what musical was built with Nascar fans...Sutton Foster and Matthew Broderick do not emerge unscathed either-change the G to a B and what do you have (think of the name of their musical).
Catherine Zeta-Jones was among our favorites as well and we'll take those hounds (Lucy Vonnegut especially-check out how she weighs in on her Bremma...) and we're sure another BC alum Bryce Pinkham would appreciate the Ghost references because he has a funny bone or two! Bono during Spiderman was simply sensational. And you know Peachy's favorite current musical was portrayed with Singing Like a Girl...
