And Now For Something Completely Different

Went this last weekend to NYC to see Spamalot, the still fairly new Monty Python Musical, again. This make two. I hope to add to that

Not only is there great humor left in the Python well, it is added to by the star power on the stage.
David Hyde Pierce was robbed, he didn't even get nominated for best actor, but he still rocked.
Tim Curry as King Arthur and a cast of a dozen playing a cast of dozens.
Hank Azaria was in the original cast, but left to be in a movie.
He is coming back, but Tim Curry is supposed to be leaving soon. Which is too bad, he is very good.
The songs are not all original to the show, as they bring out some classic Python by using (Always Look On The) Bright Side Of Life in this play. Unfortunately if they ever put Life Of Brian on stage, there will be no closing number. Check out the soundtrack for the song You Won't Succeed On Broadway, LOL.
If you have a chance check it out, if not wait I have news:
It is going on tour starting next year and it is going to open in Boston March 7, 2006 - April 15, 2006 at the Colonial Theatre.

And if Chicago or Washington DC are not near you either go, here to keep up with tour dates and to learn silly bits about this play.
