Forbidden Broadway Tickets

Smash-hit musical theatre satire Forbidden Broadway dances into the Vaudeville Theatre after a hugely successful run at the Menier Chocolate Factory. For a limited 11 weeks, this wickedly humorous show is set to dazzle London with its dedications and digs at beloved West End shows.

Directed and choreographed by Phillip George, Forbidden Broadway offers an alternative take on the West End and Broadway’s biggest shows, brightest stars and most famous flops, all of which are blasted by the cast. Taking aim at shows such as The Book of Mormon, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, Wicked and Miss Saigon, prepare to see a marvellous myriad of outrageous songs and impersonations from the stupendously convincing cast.

YouTube sensation and mind-blowing mimic Christina Bianco joins the original cast of Anna-Jane Casey, Damian Humbley and Ben Lewis. An Edinburgh Fringe Festival favourite, Bianco is the diva-impressionist who brings to life the theatre’s greatest voices, including Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel and Liza Minnelli amongst many, many others. Casey is well-known for her role in EastEnders, but has since become a West End veteran, starring in shows such as Candide. Humbley’s extensive stage credits include The Last Five Years, Fiddler on the Roof and Merrily We Roll Along, whilst Lewis has appeared in several Broadway productions.

First seen as a selection of musical parodies in 1982 New York, Forbidden Broadway later transformed into New York’s longest running comedy revue and has enjoyed huge acclaim from audiences and critics alike. Winning a Drama Desk, Obie and Outer Critics Circle Award, the mischievous musical is also the recipient of a Tony Honors for Excellence in Theatre. Now, Forbidden Broadway frolics into London’s Vaudeville Theatre with a whole load of show-stopping laugh-out-loud moments.

Performance dates: 31 Oct 2014 - 22 Nov 2014

Running time: 2 hours including an interval

Age recommendation: Recommended for ages 12+

Special notice: Fans of Broadway’s biggest shows will love seeing this parody-musical! Watch as theatre’s favourite stars are brought to life by a cast who give uncanny impersonations! Due to the nature of the show, some content may not be suitable for young children.

Absolutely hilarious! There was a power problem during this show which caused the sound to cut out but the excellent cast carried on. This only ran for a limited 10 weeks but if they ever return with the show, I will be sure to visit again.

It's a brilliant show. I've seen nothing like it before but would definitely see the show again. The four cast members were brilliant and the sets were basic sets but amazing.
