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 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

“The extremity is the point."_
Peter Shaffer’s epic play, Equus, follows child psychiatrist Dr. Martin Dysart in his investigation of the curious case of a young boy who has violently blinded six horses. To Dysart, it is a psychological puzzle, one that brings to light his patient’s sexual/religious fascination with “Equus” and ultimately leads to a perplexing and dramatic confrontation.
Shaffer is an important modern playwright who was born in England in 1926. He has received numerous awards for his work. Some of his other prominent plays include Amadeus, and Five Finger Exercise. _Amadeus and Equus_ were adapted to screenplays in 1977 and 1984 respectively._ Amadeus won the 1984 Best Screenplay Golden Globe and the 1984 Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar. Peter Shaffer was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2001.
