Even folks who'd diagnose themselves with Hamilton exhaustion would do well to check out Forbidden Broadway creator Gerard Alessandrini's off-Broadway cabaret-comedy hit. In it Lin-Manuel Miranda (Yando Lopez)—an indefatigable theater nerd who, in the vernacular of kids these days, is overwhelmingly "extra"—examines the Disney and Jukebox Broadway Industrial Complex and, with the guidance of a Ben Franklin-ized Stephen Sondheim, sets out to create an "all-you-can-eat word buffet" pop culture phenomenon. Part celebration and part roast, the production features a stellar Chicago-sourced cast who belt out show-tune parodies that, alongside expected jokes about the difficulty of getting Hamilton tickets and the cascading density of its plot, throw fiercely witty shade and air the sort of grievances about industry antics that normally crop up at cast parties a few drinks in. —Dan Jakes
