Spamalot

Inspired by the 1975 movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a laugh-out-loud comedy featuring dysfunctional knights and dancing nuns. Follow King Arthur on his journey with the Knights of the Round Table on a mission to find the Holy Grail.

The hilarious and outrageous Spamalot is winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical, and was written by Eric Idle, Python legend. Hear the iconic score "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," co-written by John DuPrez.

The show includes several songs from the film, including "Come With Me," "All for One," "Knights of the Round Table," "Find Your Grail!" "Where Are You?" "I'm All Alone," "Run Away!" and more.

Sellador Productions is producing the show - the same people who brought you Avenue Q, Footloose, Little Shop of Horrors and American Idiot.

The original Broadway production is now touring the UK.

The show was nominated for 14 Tony Awards during its run on Broadway. It won three of those nominations, including Best Musical. The initial run included 1,500 performances and grossed over $175 million.

Advance ticket sales for the show reached $18 million, breaking a record for the Broadway box office.

The West End version of the production was a critical success. The production earned seven Laurence Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical.
