“Lovingly ripped off” from the 1975 comedy milestone Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot spins the fractured fairy tale of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table’s absurdist quest to claim the most hallowed chalice of medieval times. Before their joke-strewn journey concludes, the knights must first overcome a slew of silly obstacles, including cows, the sirens of Castle Anthrax, other knights who say “Ni!,” and one bloodthirsty rabbit. Amid clever one-liners and flashy costumes, whimsical songs send feet and coconuts a-tapping, from familiar Python movie tunes such as “Knights of the Round Table” and “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” to melodies specific to the musical, including “The Song That Goes Like This.”
With a book by Monty Python’s own Eric Idle, a jaunty score by John Du Prez (who also scored The Meaning of Life), and direction by Hollywood and comedy legend Mike Nichols, Spamalot snagged the Tony Award for Best Musical on its 2005 debut. Now the widely lauded production, hailed as “a no-holds-barred smash hit” by the New Yorker, continues its conquest, delighting audiences with such off-kilter lyrics as “We’re knights of the round table/We dance when e’re we’re able/ We do routines and chorus scenes/With footwork impeccable/ We dine well here in Camelot/We eat ham and jam and spam a lot.”
