Bill Stephen’s best summed up the opening night of ‘Spamalot’ last night….”delightfully silly”! Supa’s adaptation of the Monty Python production was full of hilarious classic Python gags, witty dialogue and skits.
The show gives the birdie to political correctness with the sexually-confused Sir Lancelot character and the stereotyping of the French outrageously funny. The Lady of the Lake’s (Louiza Blomfield) songs (Lloyd-Webber inspired spoofs) were also standouts. While the main cast were sensational the Bunny and Patsy (Will Huang) were infectiously entertaining.
I am sure Eric Idle and his fellow Pythons would be very impressed with Ron Dowd’s production – well done cast, band and crew!
You’d be a “very naughty boy” if you do not get along to ‘Spamalot’ at the ANU Arts Centre.
