Already a hit at the Menier Chocolate Factory, hysterical musical theatre satire Forbidden Broadway now takes its West End bow.
The fabulously funny and terrifically tuneful show delights in lovingly poking fun at the productions, stars and personalities from the world of theatre.
First staged in the US in 1982, the latest production has set its comic sights on shows including The Book of Mormon, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Once, Matilda the Musical, Wicked and Miss Saigon.
A trio of stars from the show’s Menier Chocolate Factory run – Anna-Jane Casey, Damian Humbley and Ben Lewis – transfer to the Vaudeville Theatre. They’re joined by American star and YouTube sensation Christina Bianco, whose impersonation-packed version of Frozen’s Let It Go has received more than 5 million views.
Forbidden Broadway ran at the Vaudeville Theatre for a strictly limited season from 9th September to 22nd November 2014.
