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).
