Critics Reviews (For the New York Show)
“When Miranda saw the show the other night at the Triad on the Upper West Side, he “laughed his brains out”. As he should – the show is funny and the cast talented, holding their own belting out raps and other songs.”
“All in all Spamilton is a fun listen, Alessandrini’s quick witted lyrics work well with the various styles of music they are attached to in this parody.”
