From Stage To Screen And Back Again
Spamalot: Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a lowbrow British comedy masterpiece very loosely based on the legend of King Arthur. The 1975 film helped ensure the comedy group’s status as comedic legends, and is still constantly quoted. Monty Python member Eric Idle eventually adapted the film into a musical, Spamalot, which won a Tony for Best Musical in 2005. The original Broadway cast starred Tim Curry as King Arthur.
