‘Forbidden Broadway’ To Remain Forbidden A Bit Longer: Satirical Revue Postpones Summer Engagement Due To “Crowded” Broadway Landscape

Forbidden Broadway on Broadway, the updated iteration of the long-running Off Broadway musical-comedy review, is postponing its scheduled summer Broadway debut at the Hayes Theatre due to what producers say is an “enormously crowded” landscape.

“We made the difficult decision today to postpone the upcoming Broadway production of Forbidden Broadway on Broadway: Merrily We Stole A Song,” said producers Ryan Bogner, Victoria Lang and Tracey McFarland in a statement. “The Broadway landscape is enormously crowded at this moment, and while we adore Forbidden Broadway, we are disappointed that the show will not open at the Hayes on Broadway this summer. New programming for the Hayes Theater this summer will be announced soon.”

The Hayes currently is home to the Second Stage Theater production of Paula Vogel’s Mother Play starring Jessica Lange, Jim Parsons and Celia Keenan-Bolger. That production opened to excellent reviews last night. When Mother Play was announced, it was as a limited run, with a mid-June closing date.

Forbidden Broadway was to have moved into the Hayes after Mother Play‘s departure and run through November 1.
