Spamilton: An American Parody
SPAMILTON: An American Parody tour launched in December 2018 and is has been playing several multi-week engagements, hip-hopping around the country. Created by Gerard Alessandrini, the comic mastermind behind the long-running hit Forbidden Broadway and performed by a versatile cast of seven, SPAMILTON is a side-splitting new musical parody. After tearing it up in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and London, SPAMILTON: An American Parody will stage a singing, dancing, comedy revolution in San Antonio, TX!
Marilyn Stasio of Variety mused, “Hip-hop, Broadway show tunes, Viennese waltzes — is there anything this guy can’t write? No, not Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, but Gerard Alessandrini, whose ingenious parody SPAMILTON simultaneously salutes and sends up Miranda and his signature musical.” Ben Brantley of The New York Times said, “This smart, silly, and often convulsively funny thesis, performed by a motor-mouthed cast that is fluent in many tongues, is the work of that eminent specialist in Broadway anatomy, pathology, and gossip, Gerard Alessandrini.”
