In this hilarious farce—the 18th Century’s American Idol (but on steroids and in tights)—six musicians vie for the coveted position of Leipzig’s Chief Organist. Resorting to bribery, blackmail and betrayal, each man is hilariously ruthless in his attempt to win. “If you like super-smart silliness, be ready to laugh until your ribs are sore. A who’s-on-first farce full of theatrical trickery and fizzy verbal slapstick.” – The Wall Street Journal

Spamalot is an irreverent take on the Arthurian legend based on the Monty Python film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Spamalot is a hilarious parody of Broadway musicals and manages, in a few short hours, to offend just about every group conceivable.
