“God, the almighty and all-knowing, has misplaced a cup?” And so, the search for the Holy Grail begins.
Monty Python’s SPAMALOT is a musical comedy “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Like the film, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but it differs from the film in many ways, especially in its parodies of Broadway musicals. The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, won three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical and received 14 Tony Award nominations.
All performances of SPAMALOT are at the Athenaeum Theatre, 401 East Michigan Street at Massachusetts. Performances are June 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23, 28 and 29. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30pm with a matinee at 3pm on Sunday June 23.
Seating is reserved at $25 a ticket with discounts for seniors, children under 12 and groups of 20 or more. To make reservations call (317) 280-0825 or go to the website at http://www.bobdirex.com/. Street parking is available.
