The original cast recording of the latest edition of Gerard Alessandrini's Forbidden Broadway, Alive and Kicking, which was recently extended through April 28, 2013, at the 47th Street Theatre, is released by DRG Records Nov. 27.

"Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking, The UN-Original Cast Album," produced by Hugh Fordin, is now available in both stores and online.

Featured on the album are cast members Jenny Lee Stern (Jersey Boys tour), Natalie Charle Ellis, Scott Richard Foster (Brooklyn, the Musical) and Marcus Stevens with David Caldwell on piano.

The newest edition of the acclaimed revue offers spoofs of Porgy and Bess, Once, Evita, Anything Goes, Follies, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Newsies, Book of Mormon, Nice Work If You Can Get It and Death of a Salesman, among others.



In a previous statement Alessandrini said, "Over the past three years, I sat through show after show, with no outlet at all. Finally, I couldn't take it any more. Now I have three years' worth of pent-up parodies, and am blessed with a season that has practically written itself. We were able to get our favorite Forbidden Broadway theatre again, but only for a limited chunk of time. But that should more than long enough to say everything we have to say, and then come back to New York again, from time to time."

This edition is created and written by Alessandrini and directed by Alessandrini and Phillip George, with musical direction by David Caldwell. Costumes are designed by Philip Heckman with set design by Jesse Poleshuck, lighting design by Mark T. Simpson and wig design by Bobbie Cliffton Zlotnik.

The show is produced by John Freedson, Harriet Yellin and Paul Bartz, in association with Paul G. Rice, Carol Ostrow, Paxton Quigley, Robert Driemeyer, Jamie DeRoy, Lawrence Poster and Tweiss Productions.

Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM, Sunday at 7:30 PM and Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM.

Tickets are $29-$79 with premium tickets available for $110. Tickets can be purchased by calling Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 or by visiting telecharge.com. For more information visit forbiddenbroadway.com.
