Broadway Banter: A New Season Approaches, Thus a New Thread!

Jump to last reply

And what better way to start then with a rave for Forbidden Broadway. The latest version, which officially opens on Thursday, is a must-see for any seasoned Broadway affectianado. Its satirical shots hit a lot of bulleyes....a perfect and hysterical caricature of Matthew Broderick in Nice Work if You Can Get It..,perfect sendup of Once....a show-ending takeoff on The Book of Mormon,...a delightful sendup on Tracy Morgan as Judy Garland....a right-on satire of the TV series Smash....etc., etc., etc.
Oh sure, there are two or three that don't work, but overall, they overwhelmingly hit the mark. It's a fun experience. You'll laugh a lot! A word of caution: I think you really won't fully enjoy this show unless you, obviously, have seen most of them, or at the very least, are very familiar with them. (An example of the latter point: We haven't seen Once yet, but thanks to its excerpt on the Tonys and articles about the show, we fully enjoyed the takeoff on this show.)
PS: It's very small theater (I'd estimate around 180-200 seats), so there is no such thing as a bad seat.....so, take advantage of the best discount offer you can find.
