The parody sensation, “Forbidden Broadway,” is gearing up for its long-awaited debut on Broadway. Originally slated to begin performances at Hayes Theater in late July, the production moved up its premiere date to July 15 before its August 5 opening night with an extension of the limited engagement until November 1. 

The latest incarnation of Gerald Alessandrini’s Broadway production will be titled “Forbidden Broadway on Broadway: Merrily We Stole a Song,” – a nod to the Sondheim musical, “Merrily We Roll Along.” The play is set to be spearheaded by Ryan Bogner, Victoria Lang, and Tracey Stroock McFarland, alongside John Freedson and Harriet Yellin and will feature a rotating cast of guest stars.
