I have every line of Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail memorized. I think I used to watch it three times a day – and I never get tired of it. It’s only second to Roman Holiday as my favorite movie because Audrey Hepburn is not in it. Wouldn’t THAT have made for an interesting movie!?
I jumped at the chance to see SPAM-A-LOT now that it’s at the National Theatre
. I had never been to a show at National. And although I once auditioned for a dancing part in the show, I had never actually seen SPAM-A-LOT as a broadway adaptation.
I found myself reciting lines along with the actors (it’s that close to the movie), and still loved every minute. Still wish I were up on stage, though… It’s definitely a musical for people who don’t like musicals…and for those that do!
