I checked out Spamalot tonight and had a really good time at the show.

The play is an adaptation of Monty Python and The Holy Grail, so I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t be able to match the humor of the original movie. Luckily it has a zaniness all its own and even the parts directly lifted from the film flow quite well from song to song. It works even when they incorporate “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life” from Life of Brian into it as a major song number. The set pieces, the kooky animations and the biting humor is sharp throughout.

It just opened yesterday night so tickets should still be available if you’re interested in pretending you’re a cultured theatre-goer while enjoying being a big nerd at the same time. 🙂
