Spamilton is a joyous musical parody, in love with
what it mocks, and it is a very funny show currently
breaking box office records in New York.
The musical theatre phenomenon Hamilton, and its geniused creator, Lin-
Manuel Miranda. Is the object of its witty ridicule-not the musical itself, but
the phenomenon, the brand “Hamilton” that has taken on a life of its own:
the hopeless quest for tickets. The speculation about the film version, and
most of all, the Revolution-not the political one in the 18th century, but the
one on show business. Written and directed by Gerard Alessandrini the
creator of Forbidden Broadway in all twenty-five editions (all previously
recorded by DRG Records). Those shows are usually scathing in their humor.
Unlike this one. Although an affectionate tribute to the world of musical
theater is always the point: “Raise a glass to Broadway/And that’s the story
of tonight.” If you’re a Hamilton fan-or just a musical theater fan- don’t miss
listening to this album!
