During its annual hiatus from the 47th Street Theatre, the New York production of Forbidden Broadway: Special Victims Unit will play a limited run at Chicago's Royal George Theatre. Performances at the Illinois venue begin April 19.
Under the terms of its rental agreement, Forbidden Broadway must vacate the 47th Street Theatre ten weeks each spring to allow The Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre the opportunity to play a New York engagement.
The New York company of Forbidden Broadway currently features Jared Bradshaw, Jeanne Montano, Valerie Fagan and Michael West with David Caldwell on piano.
Created, written and co-directed by Alessandrini, the creative team also includes Phillip George (co-director), Alvin Colt (costume designer), Megan K. Halpern (set designer) and Marc Janowitz (lighting designer).
Tickets, priced $60-$65, are available by calling (212) 239-6200. The 47th Street Theatre is located at 304 West 47th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.
