Long a staple of Off-Broadway musical entertainment, Gerard Alessandrini’s Forbidden Broadway has been keeping people in stitches since 1979. Playfully ruthless in its send-ups of musical theater, the show skewers with abandon. The current iteration, Forbidden Broadway: The Next Generation brilliantly keeps the laughter flowing. It is a delight from start to finish.
