Center Theatre Group artistic director Michael Ritchie has only one thing to say about the fact that “Spamilton,” a popular “Hamilton” spoof, will launch its national tour at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City as part of the company’s 2017-18 season.

“It’s a really funny show and you don’t have to take out a second mortgage to see it,” Ritchie said Tuesday, when Center Theatre Group announced the West Coast premiere of “Spamilton.” “That’s the best, and most, I can say about it.”


“Spamilton” is scheduled to run at Kirk Douglas Theatre from Nov. 5 through Dec. 31. Tickets will be $25 to $75, subject to change, a Center Theatre Group spokesman said. “Spamilton” initially will be available only as part of a 2017-18 Center Theatre Group subscription season. Additional tour dates and cities have yet to be announced.
