Forbidden Broadway, Vol. 1

Forbidden Broadway, known also as Forbidden Broadway, Volume 1, is the first album released by Gerard Alessandrini, the creator of Forbidden Broadway. Because the album features the five cast members from the original show, the album bears the label "Original Cast Recording."

The album, recorded June 28, 1984 at Time Capsules Studios in New York, spoofs Broadway's latest hits, including Amadeus, Evita, The Pirates of Penzance, and Annie and attacking stars like Carol Channing, Angela Lansbury, Ethel Merman, and Jerry Herman.
