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
Make sure you print out your ticket confirmation, so you will be waved through. Otherwise , you will need to stop and have your purchase confirmed. Although I understand the need to "reserve" seats for the lobby volunteers in this general seating theatre, choosing less conspicuous seats would be a better option.Monty Python's Spamalot info • Aug 11 2014 star this tip starred

Red Two to Red Leader: This looks like it’s going to be a dumb play.
Red Leader: Stay on target.
Red Two to Red Leader: No I’m serious. The first act of this play seems like it was written by a 16-year old boy.
Red Leader: Stay on target.
Michael Milnik’s play, “Spacebar: A Broadway Play by Kyle Sugarman,” is deceptive. A seemingly simple space opera appears on the surface of Act I while an undercurrent bubbles and simmers beneath the juvenile dialog. It’s all a subterfuge by Milnik to bring some heavy topics to a slow boil: loss, anger, loneliness. It’s also an opportunity for Milnik to stick several large pins into the overinflated balloon that is Broadway’s self-delusion of glamor and grandeur.
The cast for this World Premiere production of “Spacebar: A Broadway Play by Kyle Sugarman” digs in with relish, channeling the best and the worst of television space opera from "Star Wars," "Star Trek," and "Firefly/Serenity" while delivering Milnik’s dramatic contemporary punch with ease.
Only one question remains at the end of the play. Fort Collins?
Go see this one. It’s not likely that something similar will come your way again.

"SpaceBar" is a goofy, poignant piece about Kyle Sugarman - a 16 year old high school kid from a family hit by tragedy - who writes a play he is convinced will make Broadway salivate to produce and change the world - at least his world. What's it...continued
