“Spamalot,” Eric Idle’s musical adaptation of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” a comedic retelling of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, comes to the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center beginning Friday, Aug. 4.
Monty Python was a comedy group featuring Idle, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, John Cleese and Michael Palin. The musical, with book, lyrics and music (with John Du Prez and Neil Innes) by Idle, won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2005 and has gone on to be seen on the stage by millions around the world. The 3-D Theatricals production runs through Sunday, Aug. 13.
Los Angeles Ovation Award winning actor Jeff Skowron plays Robin, one of King Arthur’s knights, monk Brother Maynard, as well as some of Monty Python’s “clueless guards and sardonic sentries.”
“People keep asking about the storyline and character arcs in this show, but that’s taking it way too seriously,” Skowron said. “This is a fun, ridiculous, hilarious, stupid, fast-paced and extraordinary show that eschews meaning and depth. It’s unlike any other musical. We have an amazing cast who keep me laughing daily in rehearsals, beautiful, skilled dancers and gorgeous voices. Plus we have the original Broadway sets and costumes. 3-D Theatricals always goes above and beyond in their production values and this one is no exception.”
Nick Tubbs, a member of Downtown Disney’s vocal group Westbeat, makes his 3-D Theatricals debut playing Dennis Galahad, a former peasant turned knight who becomes King Arthur’s first recruit to join him at the Round Table….
