Forbidden Broadway is a parody of famous Broadway Musicals (think Live Bubble Gang Spoof Skits Concert) like Into the Woods, Les Mesirables, Cats, West Side Story, Rent, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Mamma Mia, to name a few.
It's a very timely show considering some of these Broadway musicals have been staged in Manila and most musical theater fans can relate to the popular spoofs.
If you hear someone laughing about a "lost in translation" scene, it is probably because they either want to let you know that they can relate to the spoof (since they know more about Musical Broadway than you do) or they just want to reveal their age. :)
