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!"
Spamalot is an adaptation of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the 1975 film that is the best loved and most successful of the Monty Python screen ventures. This outrageous new musical stars Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) as King Arthur, David Hyde Pierce (Frasier) as Sir Robin and Hank Azaria as Sir Lancelot. Tony and Academy Award-winner Mike Nichols will serve as director.
