The celebrated roast of Broadway takes musical potshots at Once, The Book of Mormon, Spiderman, Nice Work If You Can Get It, Evita, Porgy and Bess, Anything Goes and Follies and more, and features outrageous costumes, hilarious rewrites of the songs you know, and dead-on impressions.

Created and written by Gerard Alessandrini (2006 Special Tony Award for Excellence in the Theatre), who directs along with Phillip George (Whoop-Dee-Doo, Shout!), this production features Natalie Charlé Ellis, Scott Richard Foster, Jenny Lee Stern and Marcus Stevens.
