Lost in Boston

Best of Forbidden Broadway
Forbidden Broadway was a cabaret styled show that spoofed everything and anything Broadway–from musicals themselves, to performers, and trends. The original production opened in January 1982, written and directed by Gerard Alessandrini. Over the years there have been many iterations and Sounds of Broadway has them all.
