Monty Python's SpamalotBook and Lyrics by Eric Idle
Music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film "Monty Python and The Holy Grail," this outrageous parody tells the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and has been called "Best new musical to open" by The New York Times.
While embarking on their quest for the Holy Grail, the Knights encounter flying cows, killer rabbits, and taunting Frenchmen while performing heart-stopping musical numbers.
