Theatre Nebula proudly presents

MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT!

Feeling a little blue?  Try looking on the bright side of life.  Theatre Nebula's production of the delightfully barmy musical Monty Python's Spamalot! is stocked with an A-team of stage jesters and buffoons.  Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail and adapted by Monty Python member Eric Idle (who co-wrote the show's score with John Du Prez), is just as garish, madcap and entertaining maybe more so.  The musical mashes up Camelot with Vegas, madrigals with power ballads, and killer rabbits with a gay Sir Lancelot romance.  Moreover, it shamelessly skewers musicals in general, with some especially choice jobs at Fiddler on the Roof and Phantom of the Opera. Spamalot is set in Britain in the Middle Ages and it gleefully milks such abominations as the black plague and gruesome warfare for laughs, as it retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, shrubbery, large trout, and French people.  Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?  The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including Best Musical and received 14 Tony Award nominations.
