Monty Pythons Spamalot
The name Spamalot comes from the line in the movie ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ that says ‘we eat ham, and jam and Spam a lot'. Now just looking at the twisted title, no one can imagine that this musical is about King Arthur and his knights. But it is and that too in a way that no musical can afford to be. The musical covers the journey of King who is looking for knights to join him at Camelot. Accompanying him is his servant Patsy. They meet the Lady of the Lake and a host of other odd characters in their way. These characters include The French Taunter, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter and The Lakers Girls. Once The King managed to gather his band, he is approached by God who tells him to go on a quest and find the Holy Grail. The voice of God is in the person of John Cleese. The events and happenings King Arthur encounters in his quest for Holy Grail forms the base of the musical.
There are more than twenty-five songs in the musical and each song is unique and enjoyable. ‘Come With Me’, ‘All For One’, ‘I'm All Alone’ and ‘Twice In Every Show’ all are inspiring. However,’ Laker Girls Cheer’ and the reprise of ‘Knights of the Round Table The Song That Goes Like This’ truly deserve standing ovation.
