BWW Review of SPAMILTON: AN AMERICAN PARODY at Dr. Phillips Center, Fun But Flimsy Photo BWW Review of SPAMILTON: AN AMERICAN PARODY at Dr. Phillips Center, Fun But Flimsy

It's symptomatic of SPAMILTON's inconsistency: quite funny and thoughtful in one moment, down a rabbit hole the next. For every inspired sequence in which Lin-Manuel engages 'Stephen Sondheim as Ben Franklin' in a lengthy debate about the density of rhymes, there's a lazily written riff like 'not throwing away my pot' (an extended refrain that comes out of nowhere and exists only for the cheap laugh of a weed joke). Too many of the rhymes are moon-and-June; too many of the jokes are merely references in disguise; too many of the allusions are a crutch.
