This classic musical was first adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso and premiered at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. The show later ran on Broadway briefly before entering the national regional theatre circuit.

MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT kommt ans Tiroler Landestheater InnsbruckMONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT kommt ans Tiroler Landestheater Innsbruck
by Iris Moebius - Sep 8, 2015

Das Musical erzahlt in außerst ungewohnlicher Form die legendare Geschichte von Konig Artus und den Rittern der Tafelrunde. Es beruht auf der mittlerweile klassischen Filmkomodie Monty Python and the Holy Grail (deutscher Titel: Die Ritter der Kokosnuss), handelt von Rittern und ihren verqueren Heldentaten und „bietet eine Menge schoner Girls, Kuhe, Killerkaninchen und Franzosen", so Eric Idle. Das Grundungsmitglied des unvergleichlichen Monty Python-Teams hat die Filmhandlung fur das Musical verandert, bleibt aber dem schragen Monty-Python-Humor treu. Auch die Filmmusik wurde von ihm und John Du Prez fur das Musical umgearbeitet: teils neu komponiert, teils musikalisch aufgefrischt. Und das Wagnis, den eigenwilligen englischen Humor in die amerikanischste aller Kunstgattungen zu uberfuhren, wurde belohnt. In New York premierte MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT im Marz 2005, gewann drei Tony Awards, unter anderem den Tony Award fur das beste Musical und lief erfolgreich bis 2009. Auch in Australien und London wurde und wird SPAMALOT mit viel Erfolg gespielt. (more...)
