Chicago Critics agree Spamilton is a HILARIOUS HIT!
Spamilton, the critically acclaimed off-Broadway parody of Broadway smash Hamilton, created by Gerard Alessandrini, the mastermind behind Forbidden Broadway, is playing at the Royal George Theatre’s Cabaret/Studio Theatre (1641 N. Halsted), with an opening night set for Thursday, March 9th, and will run through Sunday, May 28th.
“‘Hamilton’ opened my eyes to a world of brand new comic possibilities, and inspired and inspired me more than anything has in many long years,” said Gerard Alessandrini, creator of Spamilton and Forbidden Broadway. “We have been delighted that New York audiences welcomed us with open arms, and are thrilled that we will be opening our next production in the Windy City. The rest of the country need not worry, as we hope to welcome them to our ‘room where it happens’.”
Spamilton celebrates, roasts, and eviscerates the Broadway blockbuster with a cast of five. In addition to Alessandrini, the creative team includes Gerry McIntyre (Choreography), Dustin Cross (Costume Design), Fred Barton (Musical Director), and Richard Danley and Fred Barton (Musical Arrangements).
Spamilton is produced in Chicago by John Freedson, David Zippel, Gerard Alessandrini, Margaret Cotter and Liberty Theatricals, and in association
with JAM Theatricals.
