'Forbidden' installment extends run
“Forbidden Broadway Goes to Rehab,” the final Gotham installment of the long-running “Forbidden Broadway” franchise for the foreseeable future, has extended its run through March 1.
“Rehab,” which opened Sept. 18, was originally set to shutter Jan. 15. Now the show will extend until the production’s lease expires at Off Broadway’s 47th Street Theater.
The latest installment in an ongoing series of Rialto sendups, “Rehab” spoofs current productions including “Liza’s at the Palace,” “In the Heights,” “Young Frankenstein” and “South Pacific.” There have been 18 separate editions of “Forbidden Broadway” over the past 27 years.
“Rehab” is created and written by Gerard Alessandrini, who co-directs with Phillip George. John Freedson produces.
