Sucker Punching The Hits

For Dallas residents, Broadway isn’t a quick train ride away. We need to get the most bang for our buck when we see a show, covering as much ground as humanly possible. This week you can do exactly that at Forbidden Broadway,a production that pays tribute to every hit you’ve ever loved through a time-honored New York format: a full-on roast. This cast of misfits will make a mockery of all that you hold dear by blinding the Phantom with a spotlight, dropping those gravity-defying witches down a couple notches and allowing your favorite red haired orphan an opportunity to plea for revival. Most important, it’s the type of show you can take your family to because moms love theater and dads love musical parody. It’s a win-win. You have four nights to make it happen: Shows run Thursday through Saturday with 8 p.m. curtains and an early 7 p.m. performance on its final Sunday offering. Seats in the beautiful Wyly Theater range $40 to $45. Get them at
