FUNALOT

I loved this musical. Yes, I had seen all the films, but the live version is also superior. I felt there was a pact between the audience and the players that we were in on the jokes and ironic sentiments of the songs. Although the song, "I'm All Alone," is played for laughs because King Arthur is definitely not alone while he sings, the song is an excellent example of the beautiful music in the show. This song highlights the string section of the pit and offers, well, existential lyrics in the middle of all the silliness. The Shubert is definitely cramped seating; however, my view of the stage was excellent. I went to a matinee and the afternoon included an excellent lunch at Trattoria Trecolori on 45th Street. The show is all in fun; the program recommends children over eight to see it; however, I did have a conversation with a five year old during intermission who loved the French scene! Spamalot takes its own advice: it leaves us laughing as we go.

LAUGHALOT

I nearly died laughing - we had such a great night on our recent trip to NY. I would highly recommend it. We had seats in the Orchestra row L in the center section and we had a great view.

GREAT (YET EXPENSIVE) FUN ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON

My 24 year old son and I went to the Saturday July 8th matinee (we're both big fans). Great references to other Python movies and sketches (Always Look on the Bright Side of Life). You can tell the performers are having a blast. For example; Lauren Kennedy (the Lady of the Lake) overly scatting and cracking up the audience. Also the Knights that formerly said "ni" when they improvise the word they say now, got one of the knights of the round table to start laughing. It's good to know that they are having fun. The pit orchestra was fantastic! Peace, MikeJP360@AOL.com

A LITTLE BIT OF FUN THAT TURNS INTO A WHOLE BUNCH OF LAUGHS.

Since viewing the clip will be the closes I will get to seeing this production I watched it intently. I found the humor enchanting as all Monty Python productions have in the past. Clay Aiken is super in his role as Sir Robin. I would adore to be able to travel to Broadway to see the full production. A good laugh is needed in all of our lives.

I UNDERSTAND THE HYPE! GREAT SHOW!

One review I read before seeing the show stated something "That I laughed so hard I almost died.". I can't quite agree that it was that funny, in fact, one experience that I could relate to such a statement would be the first time I viewed the film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". "Spamalot" certainly is funny though, so it goes along. After the show I read another review that discussed certain personalities that would not find it funny. I agree. Only a certain minority would not enjoy this show. It was one of the best experiences I have had in a long time. Talent on stage of the highest character and professionalism. Great set and special effects. Just all around Fantastic. You Will Love It. The only thing I could be critical about are seats in the mezzanine are a bit cramped but you will forget you are uncomforatble once the show starts. Just a note that is also an indication to how good the show is, there was not an empty seat in the house and this was a thursday night

SPAMALOT GUARANTEES YOU A GREAT TIME!

Saw the show on December 29, 2006, with relatives who hate musicals (and none of us had ever been to a Broadway show or NYC before) and my brother actually left the Shubert Theatre humming a Spamalot tune! Great performances by all--the company really appears to be having a blast--so it easily translates to the audience. See it soon to catch Marin Mazzie's spectular turn as the Lady of the Lake! Not only is she breathtakingly beautiful, but when she entered the stage for her fist number, her voice was so incredible that the rowdy New Year's Eve weekend crowd automatically became still--it was an astonishing moment that my entire family will never forget. Also, kuddos to the Shubert Theater management--there was a small "fire" backstage just before intermission, and all patrons were ushered out of the theater witin 90 seconds without any incident, and the cast made joking references to the "fire" for the remainder of the show. (A fake fire and complentary drinks during intermission!)

LOVED IT SO MUCH I HAVE SEEN IT TWICE!!

I have been along time fan of the film, and seeing it on Broadway was a very special treat for me. I was in stitches the entire time. While I didnt get to see Hank Azaria in it, Curry and Pierce and the rest of the cast were Amazing!!! I also got the chance to see it again when it came to St Louis while I was visiting friends there... And I must say it was as good as it was on Broadway, even without the original cast. Even if you are not a Python fan, (and most of those I went with werent) you will LOVE it. Oh... and dont forget to buy some coconuts and the killer rabbit slippers at the gift shop :)
