The long-running revue Forbidden Broadway, which good-heartedly pokes fun at the theatre and its stars, makes its symphony orchestra debut March 18 and 19 in Minneapolis.

The Gerard Alessandrini revue will play two evenings as part of the Minnesota Orchestra's Weekend Pops Series.

The 8 PM performances will also feature Catherine Stornetta at the piano.

Producer John Freedson said in a statement, "It will be great to finally hear our show as I've always wanted to hear it: with strings and brass." Reid McLean, Director of Presentations for the Minnesota Orchestra, added, "We're very excited — I think Forbidden Broadway is a great concept for Pops Orchestras."

Orchestra Hall is located at 1111 Nicollete Mall in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets are available by calling (612) 371-5656.
