---- — The Chenango Arts Council in Norwich will present the Tony Award winning musical “Forbidden Broadway: The 30th Anniversary Show” at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Martin W. Kappel Theatre at 27 W. Main St.

“Forbidden Broadway” was first seen at Palsson’s Supper Club on New York’s Upper West Side in January 1982. An unemployed actor, Gerard Alessandrini, wanted a showcase for his talents. He decided to assemble some of the musical parodies of Broadway shows he had written since childhood into a nightclub act. Critics and audiences were wowed and it has since become New York’s longest running musical comedy revue. “Forbidden Broadway” has won Tony, Drama Desk, Obie and Outer Critics Circle Awards. 

Updated regularly, “Forbidden Broadway” has had several editions, revisions, three New York City performance spaces, several national and international tours, and thousands of special performances.

Tickets for the performance range in price from $24 to $30, with discounts for seniors and members of the Council. Youths 18 and younger are admitted for $10.
