This comic roast of Broadway has just two weeks left in its return run to Denver with a fresh view of the highs and lows of recent Broadway shows. It features outrageous costumes, comic rewrites of classic showtunes old and new, and dead-on impressions by a stellar, all-Colorado cast of Lauren Shealy, Sarah Rex, Jordan Leigh and Chad T. Reagan. “You talk about Colorado Pride: I am super-proud of this group. One of the best I have ever worked with,” said Selby, who has directed 18 iterations of Forbidden Broadway. The Musical Director is Denver’s Martha Yordy.

There show plays only through March 1 at the Garner Galleria Theatre. Appropriate for children 8+. 303-893-4100 or go to the DCPA’s web page.
