Forbidden Broadway Cleans Up Its Act was the fifth incarnation of Gerard Alessandrini’s Forbidden Broadway, his popular off-Broadway musical revue spoofing “the best of Broadway”.  The leading premise of the show was, like Times Square, Forbidden Broadway should drop its raunchy demeanor and “clean up” its parodies. Naturally, the cast fails spectacularly, meanwhile spoofing shows like Chicago, The Lion King, Ragtime, Titanic, Jekyll and Hyde, and Footloose. They also take stabs at personalities like Rudolph Giuliani, Ann Miller, Julie Taymor, Bebe Neuwirth, and Leonardo DiCaprio.
