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

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 !

This is an adequate performance if you never saw Forbidden Broadway if you have seen any production over the years this was predominantly a medley of old performance numbers. A review of the album "Forbidden Broadway, Alive and Kicking" shows...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

It would have been nice knowing that this was a dinner theatre as we all had gone to dinner ahead of time. The show itself....quite entertaining.

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.

"Forbidden Broadway" was an outstanding, fun and thrill-filled evening's entertainment. I was sitting on the edge of my seat all evening; the cast was so talented, funny and exuberant……it was a joy!

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

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.
