Monty Python's Spamalot at Bristol Hippodrome
4:40pm Thursday 26th April 2012 in What's On
AUDIENCES all around the world have been roaring with laughter since Monty Python's Spamalot won the Tony Award for Best Musical.
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 Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.
Marcus Brigstocke returns as Arthur, King of the Britons; Todd Carty, is back on coconuts as Patsy; and Bonnie Langford joins as Lady of The Lake.
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a kind-of new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score, (well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
Bristol Hippodrome until April 29, Evenings at 7.30pm, matinee on Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm.
