Spamalot

Orange County Performing Arts Center

If you haven’t heard, Spamalot is a musical reinterpretation of the 1975 film Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail . With that kind of promise of such excellent goofy satire, there’s really no possible way something like this could be a dud—even with the addition of John O’Hurley. Directed by the incredible Mike Nichols (who won the Best Director Oscar for The Graduate ) and a score created by John Du Prez and Monty Python team member Eric Idle, Spamalot parodies the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table—all set to song! Complete with Python’s signature killer rabbits and random dancing showgirls, Spamalot now gallops (complete with clip-clopping coconut halves) through Costa Mesa to wave all its Tony Awards in your face.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 & 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 1 & 6:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 6. Continues through Oct. 18, 2009
