Forbidden Broadway is a 1982 off-Broadway revue of Broadway classics from the past and present. From Chicago to Annie to Mama Mia and more, actors dance and sing their way through the ages. The show also pokes fun at various producers and actors such as Carol Channing, Mel Brooks, Rita Moreno and Chita Rivera. It’s a fast-paced musical comedy that parodies some of Broadway’s most loved shows.

“It’s been incredibly rewarding to see the students come together to create this beautiful show,” says Jeanne Stanley, an associate professor of theatre at Missouri S&T. “We have veteran students and new students, and they have worked so hard with musical director Dr. Jossalyn Larson and produced a wonderfully blended sound.”

Forbidden Broadway is not suitable for viewers younger than 13
