SPAMILTON: AN AMERICAN PARODY MUSICAL

 

spamiltonSpamilton:An American Parody is the The Menier Chocolate Factory's summer musical running from 12th July-8th September.

Spamilton  is a musical parody of the Broadway show Hamilton written by Gerard Alessandrini, (creator of the parody revue Forbidden Broadway).  It  also parodies several other musicals, including Gypsy, Chicago, The King and I, Assassins, Camelot, The Book of Mormon and Sweeney Todd, and personalities including Patti LuPone, Audra McDonald, Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, Barbra Streisand, Bernadette Peters, Carol Channing and Liza Minnelli. It features numbers including "Look Around (The Schuyler Puppets)", "The Film When It Happens" and "Aaron Burr, Sir, Nervous-er"

The piece originally premiered in New York in 2016 and  went on to be nominated for two Drama Desk Awards and a Drama League Award.Hamilton's creator Lin-Manuel Miranda said that he "laughed his brains out" when he first saw the parody show.

Described by the New York Times as “smart, silly and convulsively funny”, Spamilton makes its UK debut at the Menier Chocolate Factory, where unlike the Victoria Palace, there are tickets available - at a fraction of the price.

The cast will feature Marc Akinfolarin (Assassins, The Color Purple), Jason Denton (School of Rock), Eddie Elliott (Motown), Liam Tamne (The Phantom of the Opera) and Julie Yammanee (Lazarus), with special guests Sophie-Louise Dann (The Girls) and Damian Humbley (Merrily We Roll Along).
