3.0 out of 5 stars One of the better albums October 14, 2013
By cat
Format:MP3 Music
The theater season that this edition of Forbidden Broadway was admittedly pretty terrible. That said, as much as he goes on about clever lyrics and tired material, this composer yet again doesn't bring much to the table. The insults are mean and rather simplistic. For productions like Evita, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and Once, the criticisms are warranted but then he just starts bleating about Cole Porter again. Yeah, I do adore Sutton Foster. It's just a very hateful album which weighs you down if you try and listen to the whole thing in one sitting. That said, the performers are very talented and when they actually try and do impressions they aren't too bad. If you like Forbidden Broadway, you will probably love this album as much as you enjoyed the others. If you're just a casual fan who has enjoyed a song or two in the past, I'd give this album a look but it's not something you need to run and check out. There's just something that rubs me the wrong way about the many, many prejudices the lyricist reveals in his songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's BaaAaack!!! April 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Back and as fresh (fresh meaning smarmy!!) as ever. Has lost none of it's acerbic witt and brilliance in the years FB was not running Off-Broadway. But it came back and hopefully new versions will once again keep the theater community in stitches. This edition is as good as the others, the takes on Peters and Sondheim are priceless. The impersonation of Matthew Broderick is spot on and wonderful, and the trashing of Evita (deservedly so) and the unfortunate Elena Rogers, as well as Ricky Martin, is perfect. The spoof of Once is dead on as well. My one disappointmet is the take on Tracy Bennett as Judy Garland, it doesn't sound like Garland or Bennett and is actually too nice. A small complaint, and certainly not enough to ruin the fun of the rest of the CD. Glorious to have a new, updated version back.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little good, a little bad January 3, 2014
By Paul M,

Forbidden Broadway was always a must-see whenever I'd go to NYC to catch up on shows. I'm a fan. Some of the songs are in the classic FB style: witty, funny, appropriately cutting without being too mean. There are a few misses, too.

If you're a FB fan, you need this to complete the set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still going May 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After 25+ years, the composer is starting to repeat himself but he's still got it when it comes to making fun of current Broadway shows and stars.

Oh some years may have been recording, but I would still own every release in this series. Hope they film the current edition.
