In Spring 2019, The Grand on Galveston Island will host Spamalot, the one and only musical production based off of some of the most popular sketches and characters from the legendary Monty Python comedy troupe. If you’re a fan of Monty Python, you don’t want to miss this rare opportunity to see this Tony Award-winning musical in the Houston area. Luckily for us, Goldstar is even offering tickets for 50% off while supplies last. Get ‘em while you can!
Spamalot is based mostly off of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the comedy cult classic which retells the legend of King Arthur and his knights of the round table. Well, mostly retells it. If you’ve seen Holy Grail, you know that the film is a vehicle for Monty Python to poke fun at plenty of other elements of fantasy and mythology alongside the Arthurian legend. Spamalot incorporates many elements of the 1975 film with original songs written by Python alum Eric Idle and many a nod to other Python sketches and films.
Spamalot exploded onto the Broadway scene in 2005 and was an instant success. The original case included the legendary Tim Curry as King Arthur, David Hyde Pierce as Sir Robin, and The Simpsons voice actor Hank Azaria as not only Sir Lancelot but also other iconic Holy Grail roles like the French Taunter, Knight of Ni, and Tim the Enchanter. The original Broadway production was nominated for 14 Tony Awards and won three including Best Musical, Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and Best Direction of a Musical. A 2019 film starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Peter Dinklage is in the works.
