Don't see it if you dont like parody musicals that poke fun and reference several other broadway shows

Entertaining

See it if you like a light musical takeoff on a classic Musical- Hamilton. It's funny, light-hearted and entertaining.Cleaver, light, and recommend it

Don't see it if You don't have a good sense humor. Are not familiar with the show, Hamilton. Light easy music, but not the greatest score of a show. Silly.

Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Great writing, Great singing

See it if you love MUSICALS, especially, but not limited to HAMILTON. You won't get all the jokes if you don't know the shows being spoofed.

Don't see it if you want something serious. This is a brilliantly executed, fast paced spoof of HAMILTON & other musicals. 100% spoof = not for everyone.

77
Funny, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if It's the Forbidden Broadway crew spoofing mostly Lin-Manuel Miranda, not Hamilton as I hoped.

Don't see it if Loudly miced and often difficult to understand the female cast members. 2 drink min makes the cost too much for what you see.

68
Entertaining, Ambitious, Disappointing, Overrated, Great writing

See it if you're a fan of Hamilton and want to laugh.

Don't see it if you're expecting something with non-stop laughs. There are definitely some lulls in it. It was not what it's set up to be.

82

See it if You are a musical Theater nerd. As a Forbidden Broadway show, it spoofs all musical theater, not just Hamilton.

Don't see it if You don't like musical theater, or you don't know anything about Hamilton.

"The bulk of the show is carried by a jaw-dropping ensemble in multiple roles...They drive the hilarity all 75 minutes; the laughs are huge and nonstop, and let’s face it: 'Spamilton' may be the closest you get to 'Hamilton' without going broke or waiting for years. Beneath the jokes and bitchery...

"The resulting parody is so infectiously fun that it could easily run as long as its inspiration...The talented five-person ensemble exuberantly impersonate their Broadway counterparts...'Spamilton' is not quite up to the level of Alessandrini's best work. Clearly enamored of the show he's spoofi...

"Ingenious parody 'Spamilton' simultaneously salutes and sends up Miranda and his signature musical. Much is owed to the agile five-member cast of actor-singer-spoofers, but the big kudos go to 'Forbidden Broadway' creator Alessandrini...The overall tone of the satire turns out to be sweet, only ...
