SPAMILTON: AN AMERICAN PARODY Will Play West Hartford's Playhouse On Park
Spamilton: An American Parody tour launched at Playhouse Square in Cleveland, OH on December 20, 2018 and is now playing ten multi-week engagements in its first season. Tickets are on sale NOW at Playhouse on Park's box office (860-523-5900 x10) or online at www.playhouseonpark.org.
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 Hartford!
The cast will feature Chuckie Benson, Paloma D'Auria, Marissa Hecker, Brandon Kinley, Adrian Lopez, Dominic Pecikonis and Datus Puryear.
Marilyn Stasio of Variety mused, "Hip-hop, Broadway showtunes, 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."
