The award winning musical Spamalot has gone down a storm with audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, breaking box office records at the Shubert theatre on Broadway and playing to packed houses at the Palace Theatre in London several years ago. Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is making a triumphant return to the West End following a nationwide UK tour and a sell-out summer run at the Harold Pinter theatre.
Written by Eric Idle and directed by Christopher Luscombe, the musical retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table and their quest for the Holy Grail. In true Python style the show features scantily clad showgirls, flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits and a legless knight – plus, no doubt, a few shrubberies.
The show features a new score created by Eric Idle and John du Prez with hilarious songs including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail plus the unforgettable and much loved Always Look On the Bright Side of Life.
