Forbidden Broadway Makes Roswell Debut

The Georgia Ensemble Theatre closes out its 18th season with "Forbidden Broadway," opening this weekend.

It's nearly curtains on the Georgia Ensemble Theatre's 18th season, but theater lovers still have one last chance to get their fill of the stage before next fall with Forbidden Broadway Greatest Hits: Volume One.

The production is self-described as a "hilarious musical send-up of some of the greatest shows on Broadway."  

A musical review of audiences favorite Broadway shows, Forbidden Broadway Greatest Hits: Volume One hits on all the most popular shows including The Lion King, Les Miserables, Hairspray, Wicked, Mamma MiaCats and Annie.

"These are just a few of the shows that are hilariously skewered in this tribute to some of the greatest shows to ever grace the Great White Way," says GET Artistic Director, Bob Farley. "Even if you have never been near a Broadway stage, you’ll have a good laugh and will fall in love with this season’s grand finale."

The show is directed by Don Farrell, who has also directed other GET hits, such as Forever Plaid, Sisters of Swing and My Way.

"It’s really special for me to come home to Roswell, where I grew up, went to high school, and fell in love with theatre. It’s a privilege and an honor to work alongside Bob and Anita [Farley, Managing Director] again," says Farrell. "And Forbidden Broadway is a really fun ride for the audience. The canon of brilliant, witty parodies is a true time capsule of American musical theatre.”

Don also performs in the musical, alongside Wendy Melkonian (The Boys Next Door), Googie Uterhardt (Tokens of Affection), and making her GET debut, Marcie Millard.

"I just know that with veteran Director/Choreographer Don Farrell at the helm along with his carefully hand-picked cast, we will have a major hit on our hands," says Farley.

The show runs April 7 - 24, with previews beginning today, April 6. Tickets range from $25 to $36 and are on sale now at the box office 770-641-1260 or online.
