Looking Ahead: Forbidden Broadway Opens Tomorrow

November 11, 2013

It’s a busy week here at Blumenthal Performing Arts!


Cast of Forbidden Broadway

Forbidden Broadway roasts some of Broadway’s biggest hits (and flops) with hilarious rewrites of the songs you know and love, outrageous costumes and a stellar cast! It opens tomorrow night, Nov. 12, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 24. Each of the cast members appearing in Booth Playhouse have performed in the show in New York City. Prepare to laugh until you cry!

Kathie Lee Gifford called it “the ‘Saturday Night Live’ of Broadway,” and WCBS says it’s “the funniest 100 minutes on stage today!” Forbidden Broadway star Gina Kreiezmar told the Gaston Gazette the cast “kills with kindness.” Read the full article HERE.
