A Little Bit of Broadway
January 2, 2011

Due to the extended Metropolitan Opera presentation, it was truly a little bit of Braodway; the abbreviated show featured selections from Forbidden Broadway, the Off-Broadway revue created, written, and directed by Gerard Alessandrini. The orginal version of the revue opened on January 15, 1982 and ran for 2,332 performances. To date, the show in various editions has played over 9,000 performances, and has toured over 200 American cities as well as London, Tokyo, Singapore and Sydney. In 2006, the show and Alessandrini were awarded Tony Honors for Excellence in Theatre.
