Spamalot New York features plenty of silliness and a few killer bunnies
Features: Spamalot Broadway is the hilarious musical adaptation to the classic 1975 film 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail'. This broadway comedy musical was created by original Monty Python cast member Eric Idle, and it premiered on Broadway in 2005. The show went on to win the Tony Award for best musical in 2005. Spamalot Broadway played more than 1400 shows during its run on Broadway before it finally closed its doors to go on tour in January 2009.
Why We Go: Spamalot Broadway was a hilarious and popular adaptation to the original Monty Python film. It featured an incredible cast of characters and gave plenty of tribute to the original film 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' while also tipping its hat to many of the other classic sketches from the original Monty Python shows and movies.
- Hilarious: Spamalot on broadway had the same classic silliness of the original Monty Python sketches. The work of Eric Idle, an original cast member from 'Monty Python's Flying Circus', was clearly seen in this parody-driven broadway production.
- Long-Running: Monty Python Spamalot performed past its best year in 2005 on broadway with a rotating cast and over 1400 shows out of the same theater. While Spamalot on broadway may not be running in Manhattan anymore, it is currently on its second tour in the United States.
- Interactive: Monty Python Spamalot offered a delightful deviation from traditional broadway shows in its fan interaction. While many fans recognized and responded with excitement to classic Python gags, the most exciting element to the fan interaction in this show came from the finding of the Holy Grail under one of the audience member's seats. The special audience member who sat above the holy grail got two souvenirs - a trophy and a polaroid photo from the scene.
Inside Knowledge: Tim Curry, who is still most famous from his performance in the Rocky Horror Picture Show film, was the original King Arthur when Spamalot on broadway first premiered in 2005.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do play along: Many of the gags in Spamalot Broadway reference back to many classical Monty Python bits. Play along with the audience and sing to the songs if you recognize them, such as the classic lumberjack song.
- Do see a show near you: Just because you missed the original broadway performances of Spamalot Broadway doesn't mean that you can't join in on the fun. Spamalot Broadway is currently holding its second tour across the United States.
- Don't expect a serious show: Do you think Spamalot Broadway is going to be a serious tear-jerker? Why, that would be just plain silly. This broadway comedy will only have you crying from laughter and joy.
- Don't call your mother a hamster: Spamalot Broadway and NYC Tourist would like to remind that that calling your mother a hamster would not be very nice. She probably would not like it at all. You can still say that your father smells of elderberries though.
