Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking, which marks the long-running revue's 30th anniversary, will begin previews July 24 with an official opening Sept. 6. The limited engagement will continue through Jan. 6, 2013.

Attendees can expect to enjoy spoofs of Porgy and Bess, Once, Evita, Anything Goes, Follies, Spider Man, Newsies, Book of Mormon, Nice Work if You Can Get It and Death of a Salesman, among others.

In a statement Alessandrini said, “Over the past three years, I sat through show after show, with no outlet at all. Finally, I couldn’t take it any more. Now I have 3 years worth of pent-up parodies, and am blessed with a season that has practically written itself. We were able to get our favorite Forbidden Broadway theatre again, but only for a limited chunk of time. But that should more than long enough to say everything we have to say, and then come back to New York again, from time to time."

This edition is created and written by Alessandrini and directed by Alessandrini and Phillip George, with musical direction by David Caldwell. Costumes are designed by Philip Heckman with lighting by Mark T. Simpson.

The show is produced by John Freedson, Harriet Yellin and Paul Bartz, in association with Paul G. Rice, Carol Ostrow, Paxton Quigley and Robert Driemeyer.

Show times will be Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM, Sunday at 7:30 PM and Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM.

Tickets are $29-$79 with premium tickets available for $110. Tickets can be purchased by calling Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com. For more information visit     www.forbiddenbroadway.com.
