About the show
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.
