BWW Review: SPAMILTON: AN AMERICAN PARODY National Tour Extends at Huntington Theatre Photo BWW Review: SPAMILTON: AN AMERICAN PARODY National Tour Extends at Huntington Theatre
by Nancy Grossman - Feb 22, 2019

Needham native Gerard Alessandrini has been practicing the craft of parody professionally for nearly four decades, ever since FORBIDDEN BROADWAY debuted in New York in 1982. Numerous iterations later, he has pointed his pen at perhaps the biggest target on Broadway, the award-winning juggernaut, Hamilton, and its creative genius, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Following its 2016 premiere and successful run at the Triad Theater in New York, Huntington Theatre Company presents the extended Boston engagement of the national tour of SPAMILTON: AN AMERICAN PARODY on its Wimberly Stage in the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts.
