Why do those knights say “Ni”? Can rabbits really kill? Can cows fly? See this and more when King Arthur and his entourage travel far and wide in search of the Holy Grail. SPAMALOT is Monty Python’s loving stage tribute to their classic 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. This show is much more than a bland Disney-like adaptation. The razor-wit and dry English humor of one of the word’s most famous comedy troupes is turned on the theatre and the conventions of the modern American musical. Come see a fresh take on your favorite moments from the film and a few comic surprises.
