Do you like musicals? Do you hate musicals? Either way you will love Sutter Street Theatre’s production, “Forbidden Broadway.”

This cabaret revue sharply spoofs show tunes, characters and plots of contemporary and current Broadway musicals. “Forbidden Broadway” has mocked popular shows like “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Wicked,” “Les Miserables,” “Annie Get Your Gun,” “Hairspray,” “The Lion King,” “The Music Man,” “Miss Saigon” and “Rent,” to name a few. It also targets famous Broadway actors, writers, composers, directors, choreographers and producers.

This is Sutter Street Theatre’s first of a series of Thursday evening cabaret shows.

“Forbidden Broadway” was written by Gerard Alessandrini. Director Michael Coleman will lead himself and a great cast: Mark Ettensohn, Lauren Ettensohn and Emily Kelly.

Shows are scheduled at 7 p.m. on Thursdays, June 16 through July 14, at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter St. in Folsom.

Tickets are $23 for general admission; $21 for seniors and SARTA; $15 for children 12 and younger. Group rates are also available.

For reservations and more information call (916) 353-1001 or visit sutterstreettheatre.com.
