Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well.

Forbidden Broadway: Greatest Hits: Vol. 1, has been entertaining theatergoers since 1982 with its off-the-wall theatrics and comedic parodies of popular Broadway musicals, making it the longest-running musical revue in the world. Written by original cast member Gerard Alessandrini, the wildly funny show has gone through numerous incarnations in order to take jabs at newer shows, as well as classic theatrical institutions like Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Annie, and West Side Story. Forbidden Broadway was also the recipient of the 2006 Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theatre, and for finally restoring Les Miserables to Victor Hugo’s original slapstick-riddled vision. Call today to reserve your preferred show time, and also to guarantee that any rolling in the aisles is due to the hilarity on stage, and not due to an unfortunate scuffle with a seat-stealing opera ghost. The Straz Center strongly recommends that children under five years of age not attend these shows.
While the Straz Center (formerly the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center) has yet to receive many online reviews, five Yelpers give it a near-perfect 4.5-star average:
- All of the venues at TBPAC are amazing in their own ways and for their own purposes, but nothing makes my heart flutter like a seat at the center of the giant, majestic, Carol Morsani Hall. – Mariana M.
- The seats were very comfortable and not too close together for tall people. I wish all theaters were this comfortable. – Mark K.
