My prayers have finally been answered. For the past three years there has been something missing from my life. People have different obsessions and passions but my biggest passion was seeing Forbidden Broadway over the past 20 plus years. I grew up loving Forbidden Broadway and have seen every version except two.
You know you have it bad when you dream Forbidden Broadway numbers. I had several wonderful dreams over the past three years. In my dreams I actually woke myself up as I was singing in my sleep. The best dream went like this:
Annie gets on stage. She goes to sing Tomorrow. Bonnie and Clyde stick up ANNIE and say: Annie- give us all of Daddy Warbucks money or we will kill Sandy and all of the other orphans.
Annie sings It's a hard knock life while Bonnie and Clyde murder Annie.
Well thankfully, my dreams have been answered. Forbidden Broadway returns this June and I am a very happy theater fan.
I do wish they would kill off Annie. No offense, I have seen every edition except two and Annie was never missing from the over 56 performances that I attended. It is time to let Annie die. I implore you! One thing for sure is I love Forbidden Broadway and all the casts that have been in it like they were my own dysfuntional family. I love you all and I am very excited you are back where you belong. Everything old is new again.
