Monty Python's Spamalot Tickets

Monty Python’s Spamalot is based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail the movie. The idiosyncratic mockery and scoff of this musical encompasses a parody of King Arthur’s so called legendary legend. This musical carries the distinct look, feel and taste of Broadway theatre. Eric Idle from the original Monty Python and the Holy Grail was deeply inspired by the humor in the movie. He wrote the book and lyrics for the musical in mind to map it to theatre. John Du Prez joined his band wagon to work on the music that they crafted as a gratifying experience with all the possible wit.

Every bit and piece of the characters, their actions and words is ridiculed in a vibrant use of gestures and verbal tones. A clan of nights Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot, Sir Galahad and Sir Bedevere shy away from their jobs are directed but divine orders to trace the Holy Grail. They fall in conflict with a French mini-army whom they intend to beat with a wooden rabbit ala Trojan Horse style. Yet they leave it with them empty calling for a barnyard animal bombardment from the retaliating side. The number Run Away concludes the act and binds audiences to what commences after intermission.
