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

Red was a fantastic experience. This was my first trip to Playhouse in the Park, and the space was great. The theatre itself felt intimate, though I'm sure there were several hundred seats - it didn't seem there was a bad seat in the house. The box office staff allowed us to select our seats, and we chose seats in the third row, on the side - our seats were perfect. The play itself was fantastic. The performance drew me in, and kept me engaged for the entire 90-minute show. The character who played Mark Rothko was exceptionally notable - he was intense, self-focused (yet ironically unable to step out of his narcissistic world), and sometimes funny (both when the character meant to be and when he didn't). The other character (Ken), was great to watch - he served as Rothko's personal canvas, with his impressionable, eager, but internally dark and conflicted nature. The end of the play was very fitting; and the whole show was simultaneously entertaining, ironic, and interesting enough to talk about for hours afterward.
