    Silliness abounds on the Broadway cast recording of MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT, a loose adaptation of the revered (and much-quoted) film MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL. Penned by Python member Eric Idle (along with his musical collaborator John Du Prez), SPAMALOT follows the absurd adventures of King Arthur (Tim Curry) and his Knights of the Round Table, including Sir Robin (David Hyde Pierce) and Sir Lancelot (Hank Azaria). While the production plays into the conventions of the musical, with plenty of over-the-top singing, it also subverts those cliches, most notably on the hilarious "The Song That Goes Like This," which skewers the Broadway standard of sugary-sweet romantic duets (where a couple can "overact like hell"). Throughout SPAMALOT, cheeky Python-esque humor is always on hand, so much so that the production even includes "Always Look on the Bright Side Of Life," the classic sing-along number from another favorite Python movie, LIFE OF BRIAN.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (No. 975, p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[D]avid Hyde Pierce, Tim Curry and others [belt out] spoofy and ridiculously clever tunes that don't need to be seen to be believed or enjoyed."
