Upstart Productions' Forbidden Broadway Opens May 11

After the successful run of Breakups and Breakdowns last year and the big partnership with Rivalry the Musical a few months ago, Upstart Productions returns to the stage alive and kicking with another serving of musical goodness.

Written and conceived by Gerard Allesandrini, the off-broadway hit Forbidden Broadway is a musical revue that pokes fun to classical, contemporary and current Broadway hits (Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Wicked, Rent et al.) and popular musical personalities (Julie Andrews, Kristin Chenoweth, Elton John, et al.).  Just think about the Scary Movie franchise but with jazz hands.  The show premiered off-broadway on January 15, 1982 and has been playing for three decades making raves all over America.  Of course through time, the show is constantly updated with new shows being parodied and spoofed.  So far, Forbidden Broadway has a total of 18 versions and 11 smash hit recordings.

Believing in Filipinos' natural sense of humor, Joel Trinidad (Upstart's Artistic Director) decides to adapt Forbidden Broadway in Manila.  And who are better to play the roles but actors who are already known for their versatility and uncanny comedic timing.

L-R: Lorenz Martinez, Caisa Borromeo, OJ MAriano, Liesl Batucan

Joining the quartet of cast are Liesl Batucan last seen in Repertory Philippines' Seussical and Next Fall, the award winning Caisa Borromeo for her commendable performance in Little Women, The talented and funny Lorenz Martinez who previously morphed into a dog in 9 Works Theatrical's You're a Good Man Charlie Brown and lastly OJ Mariano who's known for his breakthrough performance in Rent and Rivalry the Musical.

Upstart Productions promises that everyone will have a good time.  If you are really up to something funny and entertaining grab your phone now and reserve your tickets immediately.  Show opens tomorrow, May 11 until May 27 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza Makati.
