Spamilton sets Off-Broadway closing date
Hit parody Spamilton will play its final performance at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater on January 7, 2018.
Gerard Alessandrini's hit parody Spamilton, which lovingly spoofs the Broadway smash hit musical Hamilton as well as other current Broadway productions, has set an official closing date for January 7, 2018 at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater. The musical comedy revue originally began performances in July 2016 at The Triad, before moving to its current home on June 2, 2017. Upon closing, the production will have played over 500 performances.
Alessandrini released a statement saying: “We’re so proud of the success and reception Spamilton has received over the past year and a half. We were aware last June, when we moved from the Triad to the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater/47th St. Theatre, that January would have to be the end, but it has been well worth it, to be back in the heart of Broadway, and back in our long time Forbidden Broadway home. We’re thrilled by the current reception in LA, and are looking forward to the exciting future ahead for Spamilton around the world.”
Gerard Alessandrini - the mastermind behind the cult hit Forbidden Broadway - serves as the show's creator, writer and director. Joining him in the creative team are choreographer Gerry McIntyre, set and props designer Glenn Bassett, and costume designer Dustin Cross. Musical arrangements are provided by Fred Barton and Richard Danley.
Spamilton is produced off-Broadway by John Freedson, Christine Pedi, David Zippel, and Gerard Alessandrini.
Spamilton Tickets are available now for performances through to January 7, 2018.
