Miller offers sneak preview of upcoming season

March 17, 2006

KALAMAZOO--"Forbidden Broadway," New York City's longest running comedy revue comes to Miller Auditorium at Western Michigan University, for one night only, Wednesday, March 22, at 7:30 p.m. Miller Auditorium also will present a sneak peek of its 2006-07 season.

"Forbidden Broadway" features musical parodies of Broadway favorites, including "The Producers," "Mamma Mia!" and "The Lion King." "Forbidden Broadway" was first seen at Palsson's Supper Club on New York's Upper West Side in 1982. An unemployed actor, Gerard Alessandrini, wanted a showcase for his talents. He decided to assemble some of the musical parodies of Broadway shows he had written since childhood into a nightclub act. Critics and audiences were wowed, and it has since become New York's longest running musical comedy revue.

Updated regularly, "Forbidden Broadway" has had several editions, countless revisions, three New York City performance spaces, several national and international tours, and thousands of special performances. The show has won Drama Desk, Obie and Outer Critics Circle awards.

Tickets for "Forbidden Broadway" are $20 for non-student adults and are available by calling (269) 387-2300 or toll free (800) 228-9858, online at www.millerauditorium.com, or by visiting the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office or the Epic Center Box Office in downtown Kalamazoo.
