Why See Spamalot?

"Funnier than the Black Death"
Brother Maynard, Friars Weekly incorporating Nuns Illustrated

"Triffic!"
Michael Palin (no relation)

Sets musical theatre back a thousand years!

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT is the new musical directed by Oscar Winning Mike Nichols, with a book by the third tallest Python, Eric Idle, and an almost but not entirely new score by Eric Idle (no relation) and John du Prez.

Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and the quest for the Holy Grail in song, Monty Python's Spamalot features "a chorus line of legless knights, men in tights (with legs), killer rabbits and sexy dancing divas."  The production also promises "some of the most unforgettable musical numbers you will ever see in the theater on this evening!"
