The cast of Gerard Alessandrini's Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging! records the original cast album for DRG Records today at Avatar Studios. Produced by Hugh Fordin, this will be Forbidden Broadway's 12th cast recording with DRG Records. The release date will be announced shortly.
This latest irreverent compilation of Broadway parodies includes spoofs on some of today's most popular shows and stars including Idina Menzel, Hedwig, Aladdin, Bullets Over Broadway, The Bridges of Madison County, Kinky Boots, Matilda, Pippin, the turntable-less Les Miz, The Sound of Music Live!, and The Book of Mormon, among others.
Featured on the original cast recording are cast members Carter Calvert, Scott Richard Foster, Mia Gentile, and Marcus Stevens, with David Caldwell on piano. Created and written by Alessandrini, and directed by Alessandrini and Phillip George, Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging! features musical direction by David Caldwell. The show is now in performances at the Davenport Theatre.
