A Lot of Medieval Merry Making Set for the West Potomac Theatre with Monty Python's Spamalot!
Spamalot will play May 1st at 5:00pn, May 2nd and 3rd at 7:00pm and May 3rd at 2:00pm. All performances are at West Potomac High School in the Springbank Auditorium at 6500 Quander Rd, Alexandria, VA 22307.
Spamalot tells the story of rude Frenchmen, cancan dancers, the Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls, Killer rabbits, catapulting cows, and the somewhat odd Knights who say "ni", which are just part of the adventures and dangers awaiting King Arthur and his knights of the very very very round table in their quest for the holy grail.Lovingly ripped off from the motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is the fresh Broadway hit and irreverent parody of the Arthurian legend. It was nominated for 14 Tony Awards, winning three, including Best New Musical for 2005. During its initial run, it was seen by more than two million people.
Leading the quest is King Arthur (Peter Serle) with his trusty servant Patsy (Eddie Perez). Playing his gallant knights are Austin Harlow as Sir Lancelot the Homicidally Brave, David Jarzen as Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot, Ben Roberts as Sir Galahad, the Dashingly Handsome, Hunter Harlow as Sir Bedevere, the Strangely Flatulent, and Anjum Choudhury as The Lady of the Lake.
Disclaimer: Spamalot pokes fun at almost everyone and everything, even Broadway musicals. It is most appropriate for children 12 and older who can appreciate the unique Pythonesque sense of humor that --without apology -- can appear cheeky, impertinent, irreverent, disrespectful, and sometimes just plain rude...but to the sophisticated and discerning eye, it is silliness raised to an art form and all good fun. But, please, if you are easily offended, take King Arthur's advice and "Run away!"
