We gave it a B+

Yes, Gerard Alessandrini’s Great White Way send-up is back and as wonderfully irreverent as ever. ”Bombay Wet Dreams” swaps Bombay Dreams‘ 32 fountains for two spray bottles; Dracula gets dissed (it sucks to be him!); Edie Falco and her big hair get teased; and Ethel Merman (a dynamite Megan Lewis) is appropriately ear-splitting. To spoof one of the show’s spoofs: There’s no Broadway like Forbidden Broadway.
