You may not have gotten enough comedy to make you laugh – so here’s an opportunity to ‘burst your sides’ with laughter. Back to taunt Jacksonville for a second time, the Tony Award-winning Best Musical of 2005, Monty Python’s Spamalot, will return to the fair city for one night only on Thursday, February 16th at 7:30PM at the Times-Union Center’s Moran Theater.
Monty Python’s Spamalot is adapted from the most popular motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail,whichis the winner of three 2005 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Director (Mike Nichols), as well as the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for Best Musical. Monty Python isn’t a person, but a group of British actors and writers (and one American) that performed their famous comedy show Monty Python’s Flying Circuson the BBC from 1969 to 1974, with subsequent international fame and success.
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, killer rabbits and one legless knight.
Based on the Tony Award-winning direction of Mike Nichols and the riotous choreography of Casey Nicholaw, Monty Python’s Spamalot features a book by Eric Idle, 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 music and lyrics by the Grammy Award-winning team of Mr. Idle and John Du Prez.
John Du Prez has composed over 20 feature film scores including A Fish Called Wanda, A Private Function, The Meaning of Life, Personal Services, UHF, andTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I, II & III. He has worked with Eric Idle since 1978.
