While the show was fantastic, the problem was with the Goldstar tickets. They advertise that the seats are 3rd Tier front, but they are more in the middle of the 3rd Tier. Had I known that, I would've purchased the back orchestra seats...the...continued

I have not seen any of the movies and I know there were several inside jokes. I thought it was very funny...kinda dumb funny...hard to explain....but did find myself laughing out loud several times during the show.

Very good show, funny and entertaining. The sound was pretty good and you can get free hearing headsets from the desk at the orchestra level. Tier 3 is pretty far up so you got a good over-view but could not see details at all. If you can...continued

Description

The Tony and Grammy® Award-winning Monty Python’s Spamalot will open the Orange County Performing Arts Center’s blockbuster 2009-2010 Broadway Series. The Center run is the last chance for audiences to see Monty Python’s Spamalot before the national tour closes. Monty Python’s Spamalot continues to taunt cities across the nation. “A high energy blast, you’ll leave the theater whistling!” said Terry Byrne from The Boston Herald. CTV’s Chris Perez said “Hilarious show…it pushes comedy to its limits. This show is a crowd pleaser!” “You could put a happy-meter in the theater and watch it go off the charts!” exclaims Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star.

Lovingly “ripped-off” from the internationally famous comedy team’s most popular motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python’s Spamalot is the winner of three 2005 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Director (Mike Nichols), as well as the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for Best Musical. In addition, the original cast recording of Monty Python’s Spamalot won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

Bank of America is the Title Sponsor of the Center’s 2009-2010 Broadway Series. Cox Communications is the Media Partner of the Broadway Series.

Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail, Monty Python’s Spamalot features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits and one legless knight.

Directed by Mike Nichols, Monty Python’s Spamalot features a book by Eric Idle, based on the screenplay of Monty Python and the Holy Grail by Monty Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, with music and lyrics by the Grammy Award-winning team of Idle and John Du Prez. Casey Nicholaw is the choreographer.

Monty Python’s Spamalot is produced by Boyett Ostar Productions.

Set and costume design for Monty Python’s Spamalot is by Tony Award-winner Tim Hatley, lighting design is by Hugh Vanstone and sound design is by ACME Sound Partners. Others on the creative and production teams include David Brian Brown (Hair & Wig Design), Gregory Meeh (Special Effects Design), Elaine McCarthy (Projection Design), Joseph A. Campayno (Make-Up Design), Larry Hochman (Orchestrations), Glen Kelly (Music Arrangements), Todd Ellison (Musical Supervision and Vocal Arrangements), Michael Keller (Musical Coordinator), Peter Lawrence (Associate Director), Tara Rubin (Casting) and Gene O’Donovan (Production Manager).

Monty Python isn’t a person, but a group of British actors and writers (and one American) that performed their famous comedy show Monty Python’s Flying Circus on the BBC from 1969 to 1974, with subsequent international fame and success.
