Web Crush Wednesdays: Broadway Abridged

This hilarious website sends up some of your favorite Broadway musicals by re-writing them in shorter, more honest ways.

Broadway Abridged writes out scripts with characters given names like “LATINA CHICK” (AKA Mimi Marquez of Rent) and stage directions such as “From the flyspace, enter VAUDEVILLIAN DISTRACTION”.

It’s not necessary to know the shows that are being mocked (though that certainly helps) because the humor is apparent and with just a little imagination one can easily picture what would be happening onstage.
