legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of

sweeping tour of the UK in 2011. Lovingly “ripped off” from the classic film comedyMonty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is an almost-new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score,
(well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
