Spamalot The King's Theatre Edinburgh Review Tuesday 26th  September 2017

HOMEPAGE PAST REVIEWS 2017 PAST REVIEWS 2016 PAST REVIEWS 2015

The thing I liked about this show was it was silly.  Silly and funny. The two things I liked about this show was that it was silly, funny and weird.  Ok the three things that I liked about this show was that it was silly, funny, weird and has a fanatical devotion to Monty Python.

It's the story of Arthur, King of the Britons and his ultimate quest to find the Holy Grail.  Arthur (Bob Harms) and Pasty (Rhys Owen) whose legendary coconut skills see them travel the country to gather Noble knights are aided by a watery tart,  the Lady of the Lake (Sarah Harrington).  They recruit Sir Lancelot (Johnathan Tweedie), Sir Galahad (Norton James) brave Sir Robin (Stephen Arden) and Sir Bedevere (Marc Akinfolarin).  Together they journey to Camelot as the knights of the round table and are given a mission from God.

The show was very entertaining and all the cast were most excellent and I particularly enjoyed the character Prince Hebert (Matthew Pennington) and the fruity dance number His Name Is Lancelot.  I also enjoyed Marc Akinfolarin’s performance as Sir Bedevere.  Finally Sarah Harrington belting out some great tunes as the Lady of the Lake made for quite an entertaining evening.

Overall this was worth seeing and if you enjoy Monty Python all the better.

I Truly enjoyed this production of Spamalot , if you get the chance totally go and see it !
