Theatre lovers who can’t get a ticket to the Broadway hit “Hamilton” have another option. An off-Broadway parody called “Spamilton” is running at the Triad Theatre through March.

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.

Here & Now‘s Robin Young sat down with Alessandrini at the Triad Theatre before a recent performance.
