    Catch a lot of Spamalot

    -We eat ham, and jam and spam a lot- This line, lifted from the 1975 film Monty Python's Holy Grail, was the inspiration for the title of the Broadway hit Monty Python's Spamalot. The musical, like the film, follows an irreverent take on Arthurian Legend but also differs in many ways to make it more applicable to the stage. Co-written by former Python member Eric Idle, the first official production opened in Chicago on January 9th, 2005 and received incredible reviews from critics and theatre-goers alike. Since that time, the show has toured and set up productions in many other cities within the United States and abroad. It has featured giants of the entertainment industry like David Hyde Pierce (from "Frasier") and Hank Azaria (voice talent on "The Simpsons") and garnered numerous Tony Awards. The show is now heading towards the end of its fourth year and it doesn't show any signs of slowing down. If you haven't seen it yet, or just want to catch it again because it was so uproariously comical, take a look at the Spamalot show dates we offer.
