Today marks the opening of the musical version of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”!
“Spamalot” follows the travails of King Arthur as he gathers knights to join him on his quest for the Holy Grail. Suddenly the men realize that where they belong is on Broadway. Hilarity reigns as spoofs of past stage triumphs such as “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Les Miserables,” “The Boy From Oz” and “Fiddler on the Roof” are thrown at the audience.
And if that’s not enough excitement for one day, “Lord of the Rings” is also set to take to the stage in a musical version. But according to the producers:
“There will be no singing and dancing Hobbits.”
What? That’s an outrage! ;)
