“Monty Python’s Spamalot” – Review by Carol Moore

**** Highly Recommended **** I am not embarrassed to admit that my siblings and I are “Monty Python aficionados.  At our house, reciting passages of “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” verbatim was normal dinner conversation for my siblings and me.  When I heard Eric Idle had written a musical version of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, I knew I had to see it.  So, long before I started writing reviews, I saw “Spamalot” in Chicago before it went to Broadway.  I’ve seen at least five productions of the show, and it still makes me laugh.  Mercury Theater’s production of “Monty Python’s Spamalot” was hysterical!  4 Big Spotlights
