BRIGHT STAR OPENER TAKES HILARIOUS LOOK AT THE MOVIES

LA CROSSE, Wis.—From Alice in Wonderland to Austin Powers, no film is sacred during the smash hit musical comedy that opens the Viterbo University Bright Star Season this fall. Offering a satirical look at the movies, Forbidden Hollywood comes to town on Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

Hot on the heels of its long-running predecessor, Forbidden Broadway, Forbidden Hollywood is fast paced, furious, and outrageously funny. Cutting through the glitter and star power of tinseltown with surgical precision, Forbidden Hollywood highlights Disney favorites alongside films like Antz, Saving Private Ryan, Braveheart, and Bridges of Madison County.

Even film stars aren’t exempt. Among those satirized are: Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Keanu Reeves, Cameron Diaz, Jim Carrey, Rosie Perez, and long-famous stars like Doris Day, Judy Garland, Marlon Brando, Barbara Streisand, and Audrey Hepburn.

Creator Gerard Alessandrini keeps the show current by constantly updating the material with his wicked pen. Find out why the Associated Press called Forbidden Hollywood, "Good, nasty fun."

Forbidden Hollywood is sponsored by WIZM AM 1410 and supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

Tickets are $22. To order, contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100 or explore the Bright Star Season.
