If you're looking for outrageous musical comedy, you've just found the Holy Grail. Spamalot is a hilariously over-the-top extravaganza from Monty Python alum Eric Idle that 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 -- which won three Tony Awards including Best Musical during its original Broadway run -- 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). The musical numbers feature plenty of Python favorites including "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" and "The Song That Goes Like This." Learn More

What the_ New York Post _called “The funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off returns to the stage at The Maverick Theater. Michael Frayn’s (Copenhagen, Democracy) critically acclaimed play-within-a-play follows a theatrical company’s desperate attempt to perform their own farce, “Nothing On.” The show begins watching a thoroughly unprepared final dress rehearsal, and continues through two more nights of performances seen from both on-stage and back-stage. The actors create a first-rate farce of their own—forgetting lines, dropping trousers, and losing countless plates of sardines. Behind the scenes, love triangles and ruined affairs add fury and revenge to the mayhem under the lights, leading to pratfalls, flying props and more than one bloody nose. In the end, at the frenetic final performance, the two farces merge into one perfectly ravaged and wholly uproarious theatrical nervous breakdown.
Directed by Maverick co-owner Nathan Makaryk who also manages the improv troupe Improv Shmimprov, which has successfully entertained O.C. audiences every weekend for the last 3 and half years. The entire show is staged on a two story set that rotates 180 degrees between acts. Performed on the Maverick’s Main Stage; audiences will find themselves so close to the action they might smell the Sardines.
