Every time a friend returns from a Broadway show raving about their experience (the costumes and the dancing and the blah, blah, blah) you feel a certain twinge of jealously. How could you have missed another production? If only there was a way to catch them all at once... Well, Forbidden Broadway is your answer! Musical Theatre West is reproducing the famous Gerard Alessandrini off-Broadway success at Long Beachs Carpenter Center. This satirical amalgam combines numbers from all the greatest stage productions and successfully points out the silliness in even the most serious of musical theatre. Witness the humorous reproduction of nine beloved musicals, from Les Miserables to Mary Poppins, all rolled into one. No show can escape MTWs creative clutches and neither should you. The hilarity ends this Sunday so make sure to fit this one into your schedule or you might feel that nagging twinge yet againand no one wants that.
