The laughs are huge and nonstop! Even if you haven't seen Hamilton, you'll get the jokes, which are pretty damn funny!

Why See Spamilton?

The hit musical parody arrives in Chicago!

The latest spoof comedy show to hit Chicago pays a loving homage to Broadway monster hit musical Hamilton, by the creator of the hugely successful Forbidden Broadway shows, Gerard Alessandrini. Premiering at Off-Broadway's Triad Theatre in July 2016, it has already impressed the theater critics and amassed a loyal following that could potentially overshadow that of its inspiration! In fact, it has been so well received already that a certain Lin-Manuel Miranda himself has attended the show in New York - twice!

With plans to cast Chicago actors in the roles, this much-anticipated engagement has already garnered attention in the city, with the original show Hamilton having found a strong foothold here. A fan of Hamilton, Alessandrini was so impressed with the revolutionary (no pun intended, we promise) score and lyrics that he found himself writing parody numbers for fun - and then kept going! Before long he had reworked the original show into a full-on parody.
