Following the 2014 production of Forbidden Broadway, which went on to transfer to the West End, the Menier Chocolate Factory will host the UK première of Gerard Alessandrini’s Spamilton from 12 July, bringing his singular wit to the all-conquering musical Hamilton, which not only takes target at Broadway’s biggest export, but a host of the theatre world’s biggest names and musicals.
Gerard Alessandrini is best known for creating and writing all 25 editions of Forbidden Broadway in New York, Los Angeles, London and around the world. He features in the original 1982 cast of Forbidden Broadway, and can be heard on four of the show’s twelve cast albums. He also sings on the soundtracks of the Disney classics Aladdin and Pocahontas.
Spamilton plays at the Menier Chocolate Factory 12 July – 8 September 2018.
