Spamalot the musical is heading for a short run at the Edinburgh Playhouse in October. It will be the first time that the production has been seen in Scotland with the story based around the classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail comedy film. Eric Idle wrote the story and he also created the score with John Du Prez.
Spamlot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table.
I have seen versions of Spamalot in New York and Melbourne and recommend you buy a ticket as it will be worth every penny. It is still not known at this time who is going to appear in this touring show, but I will update details as soon as they are become available. It certainly helps to know the background of the film to understand all of the jokes and songs, but not a necessity to enjoy this comedic musical feast.
Just beware of the killer rabbits and the Knights who say Ni!
Runs nightly 18th – 23rd October (plus matinee on 23rd at 2pm). We’ve got our tickets for opening night and can’t wait to see this version.
