Forbidden BroadwayAnother rip-roaring night at the Menier Chocolate Factory as a cast of four - and their hard-working pianist - take a deep breath and launch themselves headlong into the spotlight of musical spoofs. Forbidden Broadway is like acrobatic theatre as numbers tumble over each other, performers reach higher and the stunts get ever more daring. This subversive hall of fame hits the collective nerve of Broadway and the West End in glorious fashion - merchandise, ticket prices, characters, stars and storylines; nothing escapes Gerald Alessandrini's merciless lyrics. Les Mis and The Lion King are particular laugh-out-loud highlights, capturing the ardent performances and over-the-top staging in equal measure. Solo take-offs of Cameron Mackintosh, Hannah Waddingham, and Andrew Lloyd Webber are wickedly funny, the only dud note coming from a Stephen Sondheim parody, which doesn't quite have the familiarity factor. This updated version includes brand spanking new material from musicals such as The Book of Mormon, Once, Matilda The Musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Miss Saigon, shaken up by the Chocolate Factory's irrepressible style - do we sense a West End run waiting in the wings?

 

About Menier Chocolate Factory

Housed in a former chocolate factory, this innovative theatre has rapidly established itself as one of London's best. Since opening in 2004, it has had half-a-dozen West End transfers, most of them slick revivals of recent plays and musicals, including Merrily We Roll Along, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park With George, Dealer's Choice, and Little Shop of Horrors.
