Street Theatre Company Brings Nashville Premiere of the Musical Comedy, SPAMALOT!
Winner of 3 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, SPAMALOT brings the story of King Arthur to the stage, featuring not only the Knights of the Round Table, but also a mix of showgirls, killer rabbits, and French people.
Based loosely on the 1975 movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT is the creation of Eric Idle, one of the original cast members of the Monty Python series. The musical parodies the belovEd English legend, allowing audiences to experience Arthur and Lancelot's antics in a new light. With a score by John Du Prez, SPAMALOT will have you singing along in your seat and reminds us all that history, no matter how distorted, is not dead yet!
SPAMALOT "raises silliness to an art form" (The Sunday Times) and has been hailed as a "no-holds-barred smash hit" by The New Yorker. Winner of the Outstanding Musical Drama Desk Award, SPAMALOT opened to rave reviews on both Broadway and West End, making Broadway box office history with ticket advances. The New York Post professed the musical to be "Bloody fantastic. Gorgeously silly. Superlative and better." A fun time is guaranteed for the whole family.
SPAMALOT is directed by Martha Wilkinson, with musical direction by Rollie Mains and choreography by Holly Shepherd. The cast includes Brad Oxnam, Nancy Allen, Matt Smith, Brett Myers, Steve Kraski and more. Street Theatre Company is supported by Metro Nashville Arts Commission and Tennessee Arts Commission.
