Spamalot Tickets

Playhouse Theatre

Get ready for a super silly evening filled with an abundance of Monty Python gags! Based on Monty Python’s 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the Pythons bring a new musical to the stage, ensuring an all-singing, all-dancing comedy extravaganza.

Adapted for the stage from the cult classic film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a modern-day musical success. Originating on Broadway and transferring to the West End’s Palace Theatre, the hilarious musical, created by popular Python Eric Idle, receives a revival at London’s Playhouse Theatre, due to popular demand.

Similarly to the 1975 film, Spamalot tells the tale of King Arthur and Patsy in their quest to find the Holy Grail. Monty Python fans will recognise the many comic characters he meets along the way, such as Not Dead Fred, the demanding Knights Who Say Ni, the Black Knight, Sir Lancelot and a somewhat murderous bunny. Additionally, the audiences are treated to new additions, including the diva-ish Lady of the Lake and the residents of the Vegas-style Excalibur Resort. Popular Python jokes appear throughout this show, including the side-splitting ‘shrubbery’ gag, as well as featuring “brave” Sir Robin.

Spamalot has an entirely original score by Python, Eric Idle, including musical numbers such as ‘I’m Not Dead Yet’, ‘The Song that Goes Like This’, ‘Find Your Grail’, ‘Diva’s Lament’ and ‘Run Away’. Spamalot even incorporates the famous ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’, from The Life of Brian.

Created by Idle, alongside the whole Monty Python clan, Spamalot is a collection of the best Python gags, old and new, which will have the audience in stitches. Directed by Mike Nichols, the musical is choreographed by the prolific Casey Nicholaw, with design by Tim Hatley. Continually praised by audiences and critics alike, Spamalot was awarded three Tony Awards in its opening year on Broadway.
