"Spamalot", Canon Theatre, Toronto, ON

Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical, Monty Python's Spamalot is the outrageous new musical comedy lovingly ripped-off from the film classic, Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

Spamalot tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. Flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchman and show-stopping musical numbers are just a few of the reasons audiences everywhere are eating up Spamalot.

Gord and I saw this tonight with Craig and Stephanie. It was very funny! In fact, I enjoyed it more than the movie. Though they strayed from the movie (so what!?), they kept the more memorable parts like the Black Knight, the Knights who say Ni, the killer rabbit, the flaunting Frenchmen, etc.

Go see it!

Izzy: You've never seen it? It's a classic! I can see why you get shocked looks. Ha!

Zoey: They handled the killer bunny part really well in the play. And the Black Knight part too. "It's just a flesh wound."

Lynn: I've seen other bloggers playing Wordless Wednesday. I'll check it out. Thanks!

Liz: I'm living vicariously through you re speed dating so I guess we're even. Where is the Queer Chef blog?

Sister Sarah: We have the DVD so the next time you come visit, we'll watch it. Gord will be able to recite it word for word for you (much like I am with PeeWee's Big Adventure!)

LeeAnn: I know how much you were looking forward to it so you'll enjoy it. Now that we've seen the play, we can listen to the CD you gave us and dig it.
