Sioux Falls – The Tony Award®-winning Best Musical Monty Python's SPAMALOT will take stage at the Washington Pavilion with three performances February 26-28, 2019. SPAMALOT is part of the 2018-19 Pavilion Performance Series which includes an all-Broadway lineup of six musicals.
This outrageous musical comedy is lovingly ripped off from the film classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Monty Python's SPAMALOT tells 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, flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen and show-stopping musical numbers!
“We are so pleased to bring another award-winning Broadway musical to Sioux Falls,” said Regina Ruhberg, Director of Performances and Events. “SPAMALOT was a huge hit when it toured through Sioux Falls the first time and we are thrilled to have it back for our 20th season! It’s riotously hilarious and the music and choreography is very impressive.”
Directed and Choreographed by Sam Viverito, 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.
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 Circus” on the BBC from 1969 to 1974, with subsequent international fame and success. Monty Python's SPAMALOT is produced by Phoenix Entertainment.
Monty Python's Spamalot is produced by IAm21 Entertainment (Nnamdi Asomugha and Jonathan Baker) in association with Schlip Schlap, LLC. Stephen Kane and Michael McFadden are the Executive Producers and the tour is presented through special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide www.theatricalrights.com.
Eric Idle, one of the six pillars of beloved comedy troupe Monty Python, has a new memoir, a “sortabiography” titled “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” that was released on October 2, 2018. Eric shares the highlights of his life and career with his offbeat humor in this hilarious memoir of behind the scenes stories. This year will mark the 50th anniversary of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
Find your grail and give your audience the chance of a lifetime to experience this great musical.
