If you missed the first performances of Forbidden Broadway: Alive & Kicking, it’s not too late. The show is here for two weeks, playing through Nov. 24. CLICK HERE for ticket information.

Lawrence Toppman, theater critic and culture writer for The Charlotte Observer, says “even some long-standing routines, performed with verve by a four-person cast and tireless pianist Catherine Stornetta, haven’t lost luster.”

In this musical roast, Forbidden Broadway takes on a number of Broadway hits, classics and stars — a tactic that is sure to have you laughing nonstop.

In Toppman’s review, he goes on to say, “As far as I can tell, this ever-changing spoof of Broadway hits hasn’t played Charlotte, at least not in a standard run … Nor has it played Broadway, though the show and creator Gerard Alessandrini shared a special Tony Honor for Excellence in Theatre in 1996. But for half the price of most of the big tours that get here, you may get twice the laughs.”

Forbidden Broadway producer, John Freedson and two cast members, Gina Kreiezmar and Marcus Stevens, sat down with host of WFAE’s Charlotte Talks, Mike Collins, to discuss the show and why lots of laughs are certainly in store. It aired on WFAE Thursday morning. To listen to the interview, CLICK HERE!
