Photo Coverage: 'Spamalot' Gallops Back on Broadway

​

Monty Python's Spamalot resumed performances on Broadway last night Thursday November 29. To celebrate, the rambunctious cast held a crazy coconut chorus in Shubert Alley! The Tony Award winning new musical lovingly ripped-off from the internationally famous comedy team's most popular motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, plays at Broadway's Shubert Theatre (225 West 44th St.).

Monty Python's Spamalot won the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical, the 2005 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, and the 2005 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Musical.

Jonathan Hadary and Marin Mazzie play King Arthur and The Lady of the Lake respectively. They are joined by David Hibbard, Martin Moran, Lewis Cleale, Tom Deckman, Rick Holmes, and Jeffrey Kuhn.

Monty Python's Spamalot features a book and lyrics by Eric Idle, music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle, direction by Mike Nichols, choreography by Casey Nicholaw and is based on the screenplay of Monty Python and the Holy Grail by Monty Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, with an entirely new score with two songs from the 1975 film and the Python classic "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life" from 1979's The Life of Brian.

"Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail, Monty Python's Spamalot features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, a killer rabbit and one legless knight," explain press notes.
