Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium
Who knew that spoofing Broadway musicals and personalities would become a hit in a country that is actually half a world away from Broadway itself? Well, that was what exactly happened when Upstart Productions presented Forbidden Broadway in
last May. Now, the wacky crew of Liesl Batucan, Caisa Borromeo, OJ Mariano and
Lorenz Martinez along with pianist Dingdong Fiel return to the hilarity that is
Forbidden Broadway for a very limited, three performance run happening on
August 24-25, 2012 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium at RCBC Plaza.
For those who still don’t know what this show is all about, Forbidden Broadway, written by Gerard Alessandrini, is
longest running musical comedy revue. This show debuted back in 1982 and has spawned
numerous versions including the newer productions that have lit up the lights
on Broadway. The version that Upstart Productions presents in here is Forbidden
Broadway’s Greatest Hits which is what the title exactly suggests. Expect a
whirlwind of around 30 musical numbers from 20 shows complete with numerous
costume changes and hilarious character impressions.
Another highlight of the previous run were the guest stars who appeared one per show that had people guessing. For this run, guest stars include Michael de Mesa and Nikki Gil. The third guest star still remains a mystery. But no longer a mystery are the production team led by director Joel Trinidad now joined by assistant director Cathy Azanza-Dy, light designer Martin Esteva, sound designer Sheryl Polancos, production designer Lawyn Cruz and musical director/vocal coach Onyl Torres. The production staff is composed of production manager Mariko Yasuda and stage manager Lani Tapia The marketing, sales and publicity team of is led by PR and publicist Toots Tolentino with marketing manager Daphne Kimberly Uy and photographer Stanley Ong.
