KAREN KNOTTS
Karen Knotts: Tied Up In Knotts A must-see for kids of the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s who laughed at Don Knotts' portrayal of Barney Fife on the timeless classic, The Andy Griffith Show. This is a father-daughter story about growing up in a celebrity world. Karen Knotts tells stories about her legendary dad, and adds a unique blend of improvisation, music and comedy that is all her own. Karen's ability to create characters with a clean, animated style has made this show a hit everywhere it plays.

FORBIDDEN BROADWAY
Forbidden Broadway debuted in 1982. Founded by an unemployed actor, Gerard Alessandrini, it is now New York’s longest-running musical comedy revue. The show has mercilessly parodied every beloved Broadway show for more than 30 years. Wicked? Check. Mary Poppins? You bet. Updated regularly, Forbidden Broadway has won Tony, Drama Desk, Obie and Outer Critics Circle awards. As long as Broadway exists, this show will be there, hilariously poking, prodding, teasing, pleasing, jeering and cheering, but always with love.
