The show was lots of fun - and I couldn't have been happier to see it at only half-price! Thanks to the Warner and Goldstar for providing this opportunity!

Description

Killer rabbits, flatulent Frenchmen, flying cows and the Knights of the Round Table populate Monty Python’s Spamalot, the multiple Tony Award-winning musical based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail and co-written by former Python Eric Idle. The show tells the legendary tale of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail, with a few twists. Along with the aforementioned rabbits and Frenchmen, there’s also a 50 percent chance of pestilence and famine as Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad. They meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight and the Knights who say Ni in this hilarious musical.

Running time is approximately 2 hours 10 minutes, with one 20-minute intermission. Content is not recommended for audience members younger than 13.

About the Ticket Supplier: Warner Theatre

The Warner's special place in the history of Washington began in the 1920s when dozens of grand theaters and moviehouses lit up downtown. Built first for vaudeville and silent movies, the Theatre was opened as the Earle Theatre in 1924.

The Earle switched to a movies-only policy in 1945 and in 1947, owner Harry Warner, one of the Hollywood's Warner Brothers, visited Washington and told his tour guide Julian Brylawski (one of the original builders) that since he owned the theatre, his name should be on the marquee. Thus the Earle Theatre became the Warner Theatre.
