I really expected much more from this show....was thinking I would be rolliing in the isles. Not the case in this performance. It had few shining moments but nothing special. The singer who portrayed Liza Minnelli was the definite stand-out. The...continued

I enjoyed the show - excellent performers, witty song parodies - but found it a little wearing because it's so relentllessly negative (and why wouldn't it be?). FIrst time at Feinstein's - it's a cute little room, with very nice waitstaff. ...continued

The singers were very good, but couldn't understand all the words. The songs were funny, but it panned so many shows, I had to ask people who had gone to them if it were true. They concentrated on newer productions, none of which I had seen. Now...continued

Entertaining, good cast and I had a good time but I wished that the show focused on more current broadway productions. I thought it was a slightly older version of broadway. I wish it was more current. Did they really need to do the Liza and...continued

it felt rushed and dated. I thought the performers had great voices but I wish it could have been performed at a different venue, one which might have allowed for some kind of scenery or backdrop. I don't know. In the reviews, which were uniformly...continued

Pretty venue (hadn't been there since the Rrazz Room was redone). Excellent talent. Funny and entertaining performances - but more enjoyable if you're familiar with everything they're spoofing (I hadn't seen "Once" and had no idea what they were...continued

Everyone had a grand time! Performers are very talented, the venue is retro back to the days. When you can have a little supper, something to drink and be entertained at the same time! A great evening !

Very fun show with great talent from NYC!!

As always, the Feinstein's exprience was top notch. Arrived an hour early and ate dinner in the room. Had the Bento box. Portions were not large, but perfect for a light meal before the show.

The show was funny and the performers were excellent. The only issue I would say was that there was a $20 food and beverage minimum in the club, which in itself was not the problem. But the food and beverage prices were very high. For two crab...continued

Enjoyed Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking immensely! Have seen the show many times over the years, and always love to see what's new, and which old stuff they parody. I would have liked more Liza, Ethel and Mary, but what was there was great!

Be aware that there is a $20 beverage minimum. Since all beverages are $14, you have to spend $28 or have one drink and pay $20.

Very tiny theatre in a hotel. The show cast was OK, some of the songs were witty, and overall it was quite funny - esp. for theatre buffs. But the prices for cocktails/food are expensive.
