The show is the brainchild of playwright and satirist Gerard Alessandrini (@ForbiddenGerard), who created the award-winning “Forbidden Broadway” parody show, which ran uninterrupted in New York for 25 years.
“Spamilton” takes shots both at Hamilton and its writer, creator and lyricist, Lin Manuel Miranda.
Spamilton is a Forbidden Broadway parody of our show. It is brilliant. https://t.co/g52fWYpiCa
