Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, this hilariously over-the-top extravaganza -- written by Monty Python alum Eric Idle -- borrows lovingly (and unapologetically) from the film classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail. In telling the tale of King Arthur and his epic quest with the Knights of the Round Table, this endlessly amusing musical features such outlandish oddities as flatulent Frenchmen, flying cows, killer rabbits and The Knights Who Say Ni (with some gorgeous showgirls thrown into the mix, as well). If you've been seeking a reminder to "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," you need look no further than Monty Python's Spamalot. Learn More

The story was good, the dancing was very good, but I wasn't a big fan of the music. I didn't hate the music - but none of it stuck with me. Normally when i see a musical for the first time I leave humming at least one of the songs...

The cast was really good, and I liked the music and overall story. However, this show was too long! What type of broadway show is actually longer than the movie upon which it is based? Show should be cut down and pacing should improve.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Daldry and Darling's vibrant stagings grab hold from the start. "The Stars Look Down," razzle-dazzle girls' dance-class "Shine" and explosively evolving "Solidarity" introduce the eclectic dance forms. The eyes never rest as Billy's home and other sites unfold and slide in from the walls of Ian MacNeil's boldly drab union-hall set (expressively lit by Rick Fisher)."--<em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/06/29/DD361K2QOE.DTL#ixzz1S80KKEy2">San Francisco Chronicle</a> </em>
