Very over the top comedy leave the kids at home it is more adult oriented. If you are easily offended I would stay at home as well.

Not very excited my teens only laughed when the actors made a mistake. Not a good place to take teens too. A few laughs when they broke the 4th wall as well

Went last night to see Spamalot at Great Malvern. My expectations were high as I love Monty Python. I was very disappointed. I just didn't find it funny, the French castle bit was humorous but in general i was cringing, a bit bored and found...More

Great play to see, you will be laughing your butts off sooooooooo much. If you sit in a special seat in the orchestra, you may be pulled on stage to join in on the act, D101 I think......Does a great transformation from the Holy Grail...More

I'm giving this 2.5 stars. This should have been better. The actors, including Craig Robinson as King Arthur, Christian Slater as Sir Galahad, Warwick Davis as Patsy and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Sir Robin, did a phenomenal job but were shortchanged by the script. The...More

We actually saw this in 2007, but it was a good combination of Monty Python and Broadway. The songs were catchy, and the scenes were classic. The films are better, of course, but the Broadway is great, too.

We opted for this one at the last minute as all other shows in the west end were sold out and tickets only 19 pound each. The seats were in the nosebleed section, but well worth the money. What a fantastic show. I'm not sure...More

Sorry there isn't a Spamalot London attraction page to put my review, but I took my German boyfriend to see this tonight and we both laughed the entire time. Funny, silly, well-cast, controversial and original Monty humour. And if you have enough spare time midweek...More

I saw the traveling show in Oklahoma. It was a good time. Spamalot is roughly based on the "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" movie, but there some departures and some other stuff that is either new or evokes other Python routines. There is a...More
