Perez Reviews: Forbidden Broadway: Alive & Kicking!

We sure picked a good night to see Forbidden Broadway, the musical theater revue sending up all the shows on Broadway. A New York City institution!

Thursday night, god of the gays Stephen Sondheim was also in attendance and it was surreal to sit directly across the aisle from him - less than a foot away - and hear him (and slyly watch him) react to a show that was lampooning his work and HIM!

We had never seen Forbidden Broadway before. We were expecting lots of laughs and insider jokes. We got that! Very much so! AND, we were pleased at all the unexpected fabulousness we also received!

The cast is super talented and were SINGING THEIR FACES OFF the whole show! Loved it!!! Even if you haven't seen all or most of the shows they satire, it's still a thrill to hear these talented singers do what they're great at!

And, another unexpected surprise, were the truly inspired costumes! So fun and funny and creative!

Our only major criticism is that the show could have easily been condensed. There was no need for it to be two acts. Cut that intermission and trim some fat!

Having said that…

Forbidden Broadway: Alive & Kicking is a must for any musical theater lover! It won't disappoint!

Ryan Lochte's Sister 'Clarifies' Racist Video: 'I Was Making Fun Of Ignorance!'

Filed under: Icky Icky PooRyan Lochte

Ryan Lochte's sister earned herself a lot of criticism over the past few days.

After a video of her giving an extremely ignorant interview made its way around the internet, Megan Lochte's words hurt and offended countless viewers.

But now she's saying her 2008 interview was just a spoof. And even though she appeared in the video under her real name, she says she was playing a character.

To apologize for her post-Beijing Olympics trip, she issued this statement:

"I would like to apologize for the video that is circulating. This was not a real interview, and it in no way reflects my true feelings or persona whatsoever. During that time, I played a character on a television comedy show called Closing Time TV, which was a show with different comedy skits, fake news skits and staged interviews. The video in question reflects a skit from the show in which I acted as an ignorant guest on a talk show that made ignorant comments. The intent was to make fun of the ignorance of people who actually do not have an understanding of other cultures and speak in racist ways. The skit and my character were supposed to be making fun of ignorance."

Well. We can only hope she's being sincere here. But if that was intended to be satire, they could have made it a little clearer from the beginning.
