News   Spamalot to Make Its German Premiere in 2009
 
The Tony Award-winning musical Monty Python's Spamalot will make its premiere in Germany in January 2009.

The German-language production will play the Musical Dome in Cologne. Casting and preview/opening dates have yet to be announced.

Spamalot, according to the German press release, "tells the legendary story of King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail. The adorable and kinky monarch is supported by his loyal servant 'Patsy' and the Knights of the Round Table, however, he has to find them first! The eventful journey though the kingdom turns out to be an exquisitely jovial venture. The farcical endeavour is full of oddities and weird ideas: Flocks of show girls rough up the company, the Round Table meet in a flashy Las Vegas casino and Lancelot emerges as a passionate Copacabana dancer. An eventful adventure, peppered with a large portion of showbiz, takes its course."

Spamalot features a book and lyrics by Eric Idle, music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle, direction by Mike Nichols, choreography by Casey Nicholaw and is based on the screenplay of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" by Monty Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin.

Spamalot continues to play on Broadway, in London's West End and on a U.S. national tour.
