Monty Python's SPAMALOT

Original Broadway Production produced by Boyett Ostar Productions, The Shubert Organization, Arielle Tepper Madover, Stephanie McClelland Lawrence Horowitz, Elan V. McAllister/Allan S. Gordon, Independent Producers Network, Roy Furman, GRS Associates, Jam Theatricals, TGA Entertainment, Live Nation.

The Show

Monty Python’s SPAMALOT was produced on Broadway in 2005 running for over 1500 performances and winning three Tony Awards including Best Musical. It is “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It parodies the Arthurian legend by following the trials of King Arthur and his servant/horse, Patsy, as they wander the countryside in search of candidates to join the Knights of  the Round Table. In spite of receiving no respect from anyone, including his subjects, eventually Arthur recruits a motley crew including the strangely flatulent Sir Bedevere, the dashingly handsome Sir Galahad, the homicidally brave Sir Lancelot and Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.

As in the movie there are many obstacles to overcome in search of the Grail, including dealing with the Black Knight, the Knights Who Say Ni, Tim the Enchanter and the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog to mention a few. Throw in a Lady of the Lake who is a high-maintenance diva, a song about Not Dead Fred, an atypical damsel in distress, a Las Vegas style Camelot, a huge can of Spam and oodles of musical theatre parody and there is plenty of opportunity for audiences to laugh.
