I had been hearing rave reviews for the local production of Spamalot, currently playing at the Herb Strauss Theater on Sanibel. According to the Big Arts program, it is the “winner of the 2005 Tony® for Best Musical and tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. Featuring a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits and flatulent French people, Spamalot is a little slice of historical lunacy. This musical comedy is lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
I attended last night’s performance and although some of the humor is a bit “over the top”, the singing and dancing was excellent. It’s amazing to me that a small, local theater can produce such a professional production. It was great fun!
The show runs through February 16 and I can highly recommend it.
