"Even if you live thousands of miles away from Broadway, this CD will tickle your funny bone, hey, it might even break your funny bone! I love Broadway musicals, but rarely get a chance to see the big ones, living on the other side of the country. No matter, this CD still makes me laugh out loud. Even if you don't understand each and every reference, not to worry, there's enough here for anyone.The Dustin Hoffman sequence is a treat, the first few seconds will elicit peals of laughter. The Ethel Merman and Mary Martin pairing is at it's very best on this CD. The Topol and Julie Andrews spoofs are not only completely hilarious but done in a loving manner that doesn't leave a disrespectful taste in your mouth. Carol Channing is wonderful in her appearance on this CD. But my favorite of all is probably Mug Brothers. Any child of the 60s-70s will die over the David and Shaun Cassidy spoof, with "I Think I'm Acting" from "I Think I Love You," it's funny enough to even make an old fan laugh.All in all, this is a beauty - and my favorite of the Forbidden Broadway series! It's clean, hilarious, and worth twice the price."
Uneven but hysterical

"It's worth getting for two sequences alone: "Ashkebad, Tblisi, and Kiev Express" (a new ending for "Anna Karenina"), and a vicious riff on Grand Hotel "Grim Hotel". Loved it!"
