Based on the classic film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is the bonkers musical parody of the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, as only England's most famous comedy troupe could tell it. Written by Monty Python member Eric Idle, Spamalot racked up 14 Tony Award nominations in its original Broadway run. With killer rabbits, beautiful showgirls and rude Frenchmen, plus songs like "I Am Not Dead Yet," "Run Away!" and "The Song That Goes Like This," it might just be the most absurd show ever to win Tony's Best Musical.

My husband and I drove in to Fountain Hills from Mesa to see The Pirates of Penzance 5/25/2013. The Mainstage auditorium accommodates well over 100 guests. The first 3 rows are flat; we sat in the 3rd row. You aren't given where you will sit until you pick up your tickets at Will Call. All padded seats in the house seemed to be good; probably tight, though, for a larger person. The theatre was cooled to a comfortable temperature. The local actors were excellent as was the sound system. The cast used the entire auditorium for their performance on occasion. There was one "backdrop" change at intermission. They sell drinks (including wine) and cookies, but no food allowed in the theatre.
A day at the beach for the daughters of a modern Major General provides Frederic and his pirate mates with a chance encounter and a first-rate opportunity to marry with impunity. Then duty, filial and otherwise, threatens to scuttle everything. Can catastrophe be averted? Will love prevail? Of course, but not before Gilbert and Sullivan fire a few broadsides at social stuffiness in this rollicking operetta that abounds in music, comical paradox and delicious silliness delivered with wit as sharp as corsair's cutlass.
