The show is a cabaret revue sharply spoofing show tunes, characters and plots of contemporary and classic Broadway musicals. Forbidden Broadway has mocked popular shows like The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Les Misérables, Spamalot, Annie, Hairspray, Mamma Mia, and Rent to name a few. It also targets famous Broadway figures, including Mel Brooks, Carol Channing, Kristin Chenoweth, Harvey Fierstein, Bob Fosse, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Ethel Merman, Liza Minnelli, Rita Moreno, Mandy Patinkin, Chita Rivera, Stephen Sondheim, and Barbra Streisand.
The show features a multigenerational cast of veteran performers from all over the Mississippi Coast including Brian Giglione, Bonnie Hoeg, Jay Lynn, Tina Johnston, Kathe Newcomb, James Rojas, and Susan Smith. With a fast-paced catalogue of musical spoofs that will have you laughing all the way home, Forbidden Broadway is the musical that the whole family will enjoy!
