Forbidden Broadway (summer musical)
In this long-running Off-Broadway hit musical revue, Broadway's greatest musical legends meet Broadway's greatest satirist in this hilarious, loving, and entertaining tribute to 40 years of Broadway’s greatest stars, shows, and songwriters. Forbidden Broadway’s Greatest Hits is a musical that takes songs from many famous Broadway shows and puts new comical words to the tunes, resulting in hilarious parodies.
Not a Broadway musical fanatic? Not a problem. This show requires no special knowledge of the world of musical theater as it targets musicals and personalities that most people have seen or heard about. This entertaining show spoofs shows such as Annie, Hairspray, The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Cats, and Mamma Mia! It takes good-natured aim at stars such as Ethel Merman, Liza Minelli, and Carol Channing.
It's never been more fun poking fun at your favorite usicals and stars! It is a must-see for serious fans of musical theater and a great night or afternoon of entertainment for everyone else.
As one New York critic put it, "If you love Broadway, you will love this show. If you hate Broadway, you will love this show!"

The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged) (comedy)
by Adam Long, Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor, with additional material by Matthew Croke
A national tour by a professional company has been planned for Pippin in 2014. The rights for amateur productions have been withdrawn. Therefore Amil Tellers will not be able to produce Pippin in January 2014. We will be producing The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged) instead.
It’s an affectionate, irreverent roller coaster ride from fig leaves to Final Judgment as the great theological questions are tackled: Did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn’t the word “phonetic” spelled the way it sounds?
Whether you are Catholic or Atheist, Muslim or Jew, Protestant or Purple People Eater, you will be tickled by the this romp through old time religion. Remember… Someone is watching.
