Spamalot -- the new musical from Eric Idle


Recommended Posts

Director Mike Nichols was interviewed by Charlie Rose last night on this new Broadway production destined for success.


Charlie said, 'what's it about?' --well,it's about silliness, and sketch comedy, and ---- (finally) about class distinctions since it is English! Tim Curry is shown as King Arthur singing about being alone - his visible valet is invisible to a king even when he looks into the valet's eyes.


I don't think the music will be memorable, but we need this silly humor again.


Nichols said a musical is 1,000 times more dangerous/difficult than a straight play, because there's so many pieces moving all the time. Curtains going up, dancers entering, exiting. He also said that it takes a million dollars to stage a play on Broadway even if the only props are three chairs and a table.
