This Musical Pokes Fun at Your Favorite Broadway Hit – Do Not Miss Spamilton: An American Parody

Gerard Alessandrini, the comic mastermind behind the long-running hit Forbidden Broadway, has done it again with a side-splitting new musical parody of the biggest Broadway historical hit ever—Spamilton: An American Parody. After tearing it up in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and London, Spamilton will stage a singing, dancing, comedy revolution in San Antonio! Don’t miss it next Tuesday, January 14th!

Spamilton follows Lin-Manuel Miranda as he fights to revolutionize Broadway from a string of duds. Leslie Odom Jr. warns Lin-Manuel to stop forcing rap music on Broadway. His mentor, Stephen Sondheim, cautions that a show can't succeed without melodies.

Ignoring the naysayers, Lin-Manuel becomes a megastar, the source of a social media and advertising blitzkrieg, and an egomaniac. Now that his quirky show is a runaway hit, the actors panic that despite their good work on Broadway, they may not be "in the film when it happens."
Spamilton doesn't just go after Hamilton; it skewers all of Broadway. Alessandrini borrows the melodies from both Hamilton and other songs from the Broadway hit parade and inserts sharp lyrics, ribbing the classics — with love, of course.

Marilyn Stasio of Variety mused, “Hip-hop, Broadway show tunes, Viennese waltzes — is there anything this guy can’t write? No, not Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, but Gerard Alessandrini, whose ingenious parody Spamilton simultaneously salutes and sends up Miranda and his signature musical.”

Ultra-silly yet pristinely polished, Spamilton will delight any Broadway fan seeking a night of talent and irreverence at the expense of our theater gods. Spamilton will run from January 14th to January 26th at Charline McCombs Empire Theatre. Tickets are on sale now starting at $69.00. To purchase tickets, please visit www.majesticempire.com.
