The latest edition of Gerard Alessandrini’s Forbidden Broadway, which is entitled Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging!, will officially open May 4 at the newly refurbished Davenport Theatre.
Following a 10-month hiatus, Forbidden Broadway resumed performances Feb. 22. The new edition will officially begin previews March 17.
Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging! includes Alessandrini’s takes on Kinky Boots, Matilda, Rocky, Cabaret, The Bridges of Madison County, Aladdin, Pippin, the turntable-less Les Miz, Motown, The Sound of Music Live! and Bullets Over Broadway, among others.
The latest incarnation of the long-running Broadway spoof features Erica Dorfler and Carter Calvert, who join Scott Richard Foster and Marcus Stevens, who starred in last year's edition.
Here's a look at Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging:
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
