Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and the quest for the Holy Grail in song, Monty Python's Spamalot features "a chorus line of legless knights, men in tights (with legs), killer rabbits and sexy dancing divas."  The production also promises "some of the most unforgettable musical numbers you will ever see in the theater on this evening!"
