Spamilton Los Angeles Tickets
Spamilton Los Angeles TicketsSpamilton is a parody musical by Gerard Alessandrini. Alessandrini became famous for his parodic takes on big Broadway shows in his Forbidden Broadway series, which have been ongoing since the 1980s. In Alessandrini's estimation, Hamilton was significant enough to merit its own parody. Part of this reflects his respect for Lin-Manuel Miranda's creation. Alessandrini believes that it more or less saved the American musical as a relevant art form for the 21st century. While the show Hamilton is incredible, the hype surrounding it has become worthy of a parody all on its own. Spamilton made its debut in New York in 2016. Since then, it's been touring cities including Boston, Houston and Los Angeles.
Like Weird Al But for BroadwayGerard Alessandrini is one of the most creative minds in the world of musical theater. He doesn't just create parodies; he comments on the theater world in his productions. Alessandrini has an extensive knowledge of what works in musicals and what doesn't. His parodies are not only funny, they're also insightful and informed. In Spamilton, Alessandrini sends up the competitive world of Broadway musicals. Though this show is based on one musical, elements of Sweeney Todd, Chicago and Gypsy are involved, too. Spamilton satirizes Lin-Manuel Miranda as an actor and writer, but it also takes aim at legends like Barbra Streisand and Patti LuPone. Overall, this show is about loving theater, and anyone who loves musicals will get a lot out of it.

What can I expect from Spamilton?Spamilton parodies the smash Broadway hit Hamilton effectively, both by imitating its style and commenting on it. It's a satire, but it conveys a lot of affection for the original show. Lin-Manuel Miranda, the writer of Hamilton, becomes a character within the parody show. He is portrayed as a savior of the musical genre but also as something of a ham. A caricature of Barbra Streisand makes an appearance, expressing her desire to appear in the movie version of Miranda's big hit. Borrowing from A Christmas Carol, ghosts from Broadway's past also take the stage. In a way, Broadway itself also becomes a kind of character in Spamilton as a sickly institution that needs reviving. A driven character, Miranda seeks to rescue the legendary theater district from soulless spectacles based on cartoons. Like Hamilton, Spamilton features a diverse, talented cast and many period-inspired costumes.
