Monty Python's Spamalot : original Broadway cast recording by John Du Prez( Recording )

13 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A musical of the highest Excalibur! SPAMALOT is a new Broadway show 'lovingly ripped-off' from the film 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail'. The show opened on Broadway on March 17and stars Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) as King Arthur, David Hyde-Pierce (Frasier) as Sir Robin and Hank Azaria (The Simpsons) as Sir Lancelot. Currently playing sold-out shows to packed houses at Broadway's Shubert Theatre, SPAMALOT captures the distinct brand of Python humour that appeals to audiences of all ages. SPAMALOT tells the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and their quest for the Holy Grail, with the aid of hilarious, highly choreographed production numbers. The show has more than a few lusty maidens, a gaggle of beautiful ladies in diaphanous gowns, a small army of dancing knights, and a killer rabbit. Directed by legendary Oscar and Tony Award winner Mike Nichols (Angels in America, The Graduate, The Birdcage), SPAMALOT was written by founding Python member Eric Idle. In addition to many new songs written by Idle and composer John Du Prez (A Fish Called Wanda, Monty Python and the Meaning of Life), fans will instantly recognize the songs from the "Holy Grail" film as well as the classic Python tune "Always Look At The Bright Side Of Life."
