Awards and Accolades

Forbidden Broadway has been a theatrical institution since 1982 when Gerard Alessandrini created the first edition that lampooned the Broadway shows and stars of the day who often stop by to laugh at themselves alongside the public. Since then, the show has garnered numerous awards and critical acclaim:

  • In 2006, the show and its creator were awarded Tony Honors for Excellence in Theatre.
  • It has been nominated five times for the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revue, winning three times (2001, 2005 and 2008). It also won Drama Desk Special Awards in 1985 and 2009.
  • An Obie Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award 

The New York Times has made Forbidden Broadway: The Next Generation a “Critics Pick” calling it “The Best Edition of Forbidden Broadway in recent memory!”
