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

In an attempt to break out of the ordinary and try something new I made the trip to Anderson Township to catch this show. Bad choice. I could not understand a single word of the script, the actors made such a horrible attempt to "fake" an English accent that it was nearly impossible to make out any of the three jokes they cracked during the show.
All in all, it was an absolute was of my time and I hated it. I'm not making a trip to Anderson Township any time soon.
Quotes & Highlights
- "While preserving the beautiful intricacies of this construction, Stoppard has embellished <em>Razzle</em> with a dazzle of verbal wit an unremitting firework display of puns, crossword puzzle tricks and sly sexual innuendos." --<em>London Daily Telegraph </em>
This recent hit in London is a free adaptation of the 19th century farce by Johann Nestroy that provided the plot for Thornton Wilder's The Merchant of Yonkers, which ultimately led to Hello, Dolly! The story is basically one long chase, chiefly after two naughty grocer's assistants who, when their master goes off on a binge with a new mistress, escape to Vienna on a spree.
