A lot of spam!

Kate and I saw Spamalot at the Wynn Saturday night (thanks Joel and Sandra!) and had a great time! Spamalot is based on Monty Python's Holy Grail which is a very funny parody of the Arthurian legend. Eric Idle wrote Spamalot (title is of course a play on Camelot) as well as writing the score and song lyrics with John Du Prez. Spamalot is a musical and the Wynn has a great theatre, the sets were great, costumes were great, and all the performers are top notch.

I used to be a huge Monty Python fan (starting with the BBC television series a million years ago called Monty Python's Flying Circus), but haven't re-watched any of their movies in years. I thought that Spamalot would just be a collection of sketch comedy pieces like their television show, but I was happy to see that it was a musical, because as everyone knows, I love musicals, especially odd musicals.

While I'm on the subject of spam, when I ate meat (a million years ago), I actually really liked spam. I was surprised to find out that Kate has never tried spam and she still hasn't eaten that can of spam that Joel and Sandra gave us with the tickets (maybe I'll raffle it here at the store - grin)!
