The Dress Circle: "Forbidden Broadway" Revisited
It’s all about fun on this week’s Dress Circle (8/16 7:00 p.m.) as we revisit the parody series ‘Forbidden Broadway” through several of their many CDs. This long-running off-Broadway revue lovingly pokes fun at all aspects of the musical from its stars, composers, and producers, to the musicals themselves. The brainchild of Gerard Alessandrini will be explored over several months in three programs: This month’s overview will eventually be followed by one looking at specific performers and one lampooning some well-known shows.
Although it may help to know the shows, there’s still plenty of fun to keep you laughing even if you aren't that familiar with the material, and we all need more laughter right now.
