Monty Python's Spamalot, which returned to the West End, opening at the Playhouse Theatre, on 20 Nov 2012, following previews 14 Nov 2012, is currently taking bookings to 2 Nov 2013.
Monty Python's Spamalot is "lovingly ripped off from Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Book by Eric Idle, score by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
"Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation’s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader’s Digest Poll 2010 - before it went bust) Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life."
