Broadway Lampoon

Broadway takes itself way too seriously with all those pompous celebrities and Tony award-winning screenwriters and tear-jerking performances. It was only a matter of time before someone went Not Another Teen Movie on the sacrosanct institution and created a spoof. We’re grateful that hits such as In the Heights and Jersey Boys are making the trek down south this season. But we’re even happier to welcome, by way of introduction, a musical parody featuring sharp-witted puppets and bearded men in drag. Forbidden Broadway, which has lovingly made fun of old and new popular Broadway shows for over two decades, broke box office records at the Arsht Center when it debuted in 2008. Back for a second run, and incorporating recent shows such as Wicked and Mamma Mia! alongside oldies Phantom of the Opera and Chicago, the revue stars the original New York cast at the Ziff Ballet Opera House.
