NEW YORK (AP) — Get ready to goof on "Pippin," ''Kinky Boots," ''Matilda the Musical" and "Motown the Musical." The theater-spoof revue "Forbidden Broadway" is sharpening its witty claws again.

Creator and writer Gerard Alessandrini said Friday he's preparing a new edition of the popular show at the newly refurbished Davenport Theatre on 45th Street starting Feb. 22. He's merrily tweaking the Broadway shows that have opened since "Forbidden Broadway" took a hiatus in April.

Over the course of the spring, Alessandrini will continue to add new material and targets to reflect the new Broadway openings, including shows such as "Rocky," ''Cabaret," ''The Bridges of Madison County" and "Aladdin." A brand-new edition of the revue will debut around the time of the Tony Awards in June.
