‘Forbidden Broadway’ comes to Edmonds Center for the Arts

Mar 13, 2014

Broadway’s favorite spoof and Tony® Award winner “Forbidden Broadway” comes to Edmonds Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 15.

Updated regularly, “Forbidden Broadway” has had several editions, countless revisions, three New York City performance spaces, several national and international tours, and thousands of special performances.

The show also became known for talented but as yet unknown actors, many of whom have gone on to stardom on Broadway, on television and in the movies.

“Forbidden Broadway” has won numerous awards including a Special Tony® Award as well as Drama Critics’ Circle, Obie, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, and Lucille Lortel awards.

“Forbidden Broadway” has been an unstoppable force in theater since 1982, when Gerard Alessandrini created the first edition that lampooned the Broadway shows and stars of the day.

It has been a favorite among theater lovers, as well as the Broadway stars themselves (Carol Channing, Angela Lansbury, Patti Lupone, Stephen Sondheim, Raul Esparza, Tyne Daly, Christine Ebersole, Bernadette Peters, Whoopi Goldberg, Mike Nichols, and Hal Prince, to name a few) who have stopped by to laugh at themselves alongside the public.
