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

For those who have seen the movie too many times to admit, this show will NOT disappoint you. Many of the lines are the same, but the timing is different, so don't expect the long pauses you're used to in the movie.
And despite the disclaimer at the beginning of the show, ("This is NOT the movie.... ") the cast enjoys an occasional clever retort from the audience. They also love it when the audience dresses with a "Rocky" style in mind. But don't bring any props to throw, as this is not allowed in any stage production I've seen yet.
The talent is as good as you're going to see in a non-equity show, with the energy level being HIGHER than you'd see in a professional production.
Kate Layva delivers a level a charm and perkiness which rivals Little Nell, and Annie Donahey serves up an wickedly unique interpretation of Magenta than that which Patricia Quinn portrayed in the movie.
(And in case you remember Annie’s performance of “Little Sally” a few years back, she does NOT look like a 9-year-old in THIS show!)
