Following its run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Forbidden Broadway heads to the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre, giving more theatregoers the chance to see the hit New York show that has been entertaining audiences in many different incarnations since the early 1980s. The production has appeared all over the world and has been seen by London audiences at the Jermyn Street Theatre, the Albery Theatre (now the Noel Coward) and the Menier Chocolate Factory.
Though the production first appeared in the 1980s it has been regularly updated so that each time it appears it is parodying the most talked-about shows of the time. So audiences at the Vaudeville Theatre will witness a show with references to his like Once The Musical, Miss Saigon and Matilda The Musical, to name but a few.
The man behind Forbidden Broadway is Gerard Alessandrini and he not only created the concept but also wrote and directed the show ahead of its premiere in 1982.
For this appearance at the Vaudeville Theatre the producers have recruited an impressive team, which includes the likes of Anna-Jane Casey, Damian Humbley and Ben Lewis all of whom have an array of stand-out credits to their name. Christina Bianco also appears, making her West End debut.
Anna-Jane Casey has certainly amassed such roles over the years, from her first West End role in Cats at the New London theatre when she was a teenager to her most recent work in the likes of Billy Elliot The Musical and Monty Python’s Spamalot, she has had a presence for more than 20 years and she is more than capable of bringing and entertaining performance to the London stage.
Forbidden Broadway returns to the West End with a run at the Vaudeville Theatre.
