Just about every local theater jumped on Spamalot the moment it became available. You could follow it around as some of us used to with The Grateful Dead -- or, in this case, Not Dead Fred. Inspired by Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the spectacular keeps the troupe’s benevolent weirdness alive, with some production numbers dragged in from other films and sketches and some bits simply made a bit more Broadway-y. (Like the showgirls who back up the Lady of the Lake -- they’re called the Laker Girls, because what else would you call them?)
