Monty Python's Spam Alot Show Overview
Monty Python's Spamalot is actually a play on one of his earlier works. Based on Monty Python's cult class film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which was made in 1975, Spamalot has become a joyously funny musical version of the movie that so many people loved. If you are unfamiliar with this wildly funny tale, it tells all about King Arthur. Together with his Knights of the Round Table, they go on a search for the Holy Grail. As you can imagine, there are plenty of laughs, satire, and crazy antics thrown in throughout the production.
Now being performed as a musical, Spamalot is playing at Wynn Las Vegas. When you get a ticket to see Spamalot, during the show you will receive a book by former Python member, Eric Idle. The book offers movie tidbits as well as some amusing Las Vegas song and dance segments for good measure.
To date, Spam alot has won several awards including Best Musical and a Grammy award for the cast recordings. If you are a fan of the movie you will love the musical as all of the famous lines have made their way into this production. Spam Alot.
King Arthur is played by John O’Hurley (Seinfeld). As the musical starts, he heads off to assemble his knights to take them to Camelot. His knights are a diverse bunch that include a very flamboyantly, dance-happy gay Sir Lancelot and a wimpy excuse for a Robin. When the knights are all together they receive a visit from God and are told to find the Holy Grail. From there, as you can imagine, hilarity ensues.
One thing that is amusing about the musical that is not in the movie is that Camelot tends to look a lot like the Excalibur Hotel and Casino. Consequently, the show’s biggest scene takes place at the Holy Grail Wedding Chapel. Spamalot is definitely one of the most unique and worthy experiences you can have in all of Las Vegas.
