SPAMILTON Extends Again, Will Continue Friendly Roast Off-Broadway Through December
Author Gerard Alessandrini and producers John Freedson, Christine Pedi, and David Zippel have announced that Spamilton, the critically acclaimed parody of Broadway smash Hamilton, by Forbidden Broadway creator Alessandrini has been extended again by popular demand. Originally scheduled as a strictly limited 18-performance engagement, Spamilton will now run through December 31, 2016 at the Triad (158 West 72nd Street, 2nd Floor).
Spamilton, which celebrates, roasts, and eviscerates the Broadway blockbuster, stars a hot young cast including Juwan Crawley, Nicholas Edwards, Chris Anthony Giles, Dan Rosales, and Nora Schell, with Music Director Fred Barton at the piano, along with special surprise guest stars including Christine Pedi and additional divas, who will pop in weekly to add to the fun. The show began performances on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at the Triad, and opened on September 8, 2016.
In addition to Alessandrini, the creative team of Spamilton includes Gerry McIntyre (Choreography), Dustin Cross (Costume Design), Richard Danley and Fred Barton (Musical Arrangements), and Michael Cassara (Casting Director). The show is produced by John Freedson, Christine Pedi, and David Zippel.
Spamilton has an unprecedented 10-cent ticket lottery, coined #Spam4Roosevelt based on FDR on the American dime, taking after the popular #Ham4Ham lottery tradition being offered before select performances of Hamilton. Participants may enter the lottery in person at the Triad 40 minutes prior to curtain time to enter their names for the chance to see that evening's performance. 30 minutes prior to the show, names will be chosen at random by Alessandrini himself. Limit one entry per person and up to two tickets per winner. Tickets are subject to availability.
