Monty Python on Broadway

I know this doesnt technically count as movie news, but it is spawned from the movies.

Eric Idle, an original Monty Python comedy troupe cast member, has resurrected material from the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and reconstituted it into a Broadway musical entitled “Spamalot.”

The stage production, a comic take on the tale of King Arthur, features three songs from the 1975 Python movie as well as new music and lyrics written by Idle and John Du Prez.

The show includes skits with a chorus line of legless knights, attack rabbits and other goofy material lifted from the film.

David Hyde Pierce(TV’s Frasier and Hellboy), Hank Azaria (The Simpsons) and Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show and a million other things) will star in the stage production, which previews in Chicago in December, with the official Broadway opening set for March 2005.

The title comes from a song in the film, “I eat jam and ham and Spam a lot.”

Oh, if I have the money I will most certainly be hitting that show!!!
