Manasquan, NJ - Algonquin Arts will present the 25th anniversary edition of Forbidden Broadway, a musical spoof of Broadway’s favorites, on Saturday, May 30, 2009 at 8 pm.

The side-splitting savagery known as Forbidden Broadway is on the road again with their newest edition! Now celebrating its record-breaking 25th year in New York, this year’s special victims include the puppets of Avenue Q, the witches of Wicked, Billy Joel’s Movin’ Out, and new looks at old favorites like La Cage aux Folles, Little Shop of Horrors, Les Miz, Beauty and the Beast, and Chicago. Rounding out the laughs is Mel Brooks’ The Producers, Abba’s Mamma Mia and Thoroughly Modern Millie; with lots more from Broadway’s past and present.

Forbidden Broadway is the recipient of an Obie award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, and the 2005 Drama Desk Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical. In 2006, Forbidden Broadway took home a Tony honor for excellence in theatre. The national tour is presented by John Freedson and Harriet Yellin.
