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.

I am envious of Gerard Alessandrini's ability to take any musical show and change the lyrics into something hysterically funny. Back on Broadway once again, FB 11 hits at all the big shows currently or recently running. No show is safe but you can tell it's done with love. The "Once" section is quite scathing as is the "Newsies" section. Actually, the only part I didn't like is the opening FB theme song, as it rehashed the lyrics from so many earlier albums, but I can overlook that as the rest of the album is so funny. I've learned not to get angry at the parodies; there's a grain of truth in every number. Just enjoy the ride.

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.

Broadway musical affectionados and hard core lovers of Broadway musicals even if you have never seen the show live in any of its incarnations the album's parody lyrics are still whalingly funny. And if you can see it live every one of the previous 8 albums will come alive in the images of your mind. Yes, forever Broadway, forbidden Broadway!!!!

I always love the intricate cleverness of the writing and exquisite execution of the cast of the Forbidden Broadway CD's.
And this one is really kicking it!

A very clever group of people here. I am in two minds as to what to think as I feel for the performers who are having the mickey taken out of them. But at the same time the lyrics and the performances are very clever. It is OK and I enjoy listening to it

It's not the best Forbidden Broadway album, but there are some great examples of Forbidden Broadway's classic style on this album. It's definitely worth a listen for fans of Broadway musicals.
