''Forbidden Broadway'' is typically performed by a cast of two men and two women with piano accompaniment. The show went on hiatus in 2009, but returned to turning out new editions off-Broadway in the summer of 2012. It's also toured the U.S., has yielded two spinoffs, and even made a few trips overseas. A spinoff of sorts entitled Spamilton, a parody of Theatre/{{Hamilton}}, opened in 2016.

* IAmSong: Daveed Diggs in ''Spamilton'' gets one where he's "Daveed Diggs -- The Fresh Prince of Big Hair," which mashes up the theme to ''The Fresh Prince of Bel Air'' with "Ships and Guns" from ''Theater/{{Hamilton}}'', Daveed's big song as Lafayette in Act One.

** "The Film When It Happens" takes "[[Theatre/{{Hamilton}} The Room Where It Happens]]" and turns it to a WTHCastingAgency worst-case scenario of actors being cast for the movie version of Theatre/{{Hamilton}}. Leslie Odom, Jr. desperately wants to reprise his Tony-award winning role as Aaron Burr, but laments he's "not gonna be" in the Film when it happens. It was jibed that casting would include Johnny Depp as Hamilton, Shia LeBoeuf as Jefferson, hinted Russell Crowe would be cast as Burr instead.

** The last one got "Two-fers" for "Shuffle Along," which she complains "That show closed after Audra (McDonald) left!" Lin-Manuel recognizes HER as "You're Audra McDonald! The HAS-Been! You haven't won a Tony in months!"

* ActingForTwo: In ''Spamilton'' two songs have the female lead (Nora Schell on the Broadway Cast Album) ''sing for three'':
** "Look Around (The Schuyler Puppets)" has the female lead play "Renee Elise," and use puppets to portray "Phillipa Soo" and "Jasmine," changing her voice to fit the sister she's singing.
** "Lin-Manuel & J-Lo, Beyonce and Gloria Estefan" has the female lead play the Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce Knowles and Gloria Estefan, as each diva tries to get a song from Lin-Manuel. The lead also sings in the style of the diva she's portraying at the time.
