  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Spamalot

    March 17, 2005: "That Spamalot is the best new musical to open on Broadway this season is inarguable, but that's not saying much."

    March 17, 2005: "Eric Idle and Mike Nichols have indeed fashioned a Holy Grail of a big, crowd-pleasing Broadway musical comedy. The show slays 'em like Excalibur."

  • USA TODAY REVIEW OF Spamalot

    March 17, 2005: "In Monty Python's Spamalot, the new musical "lovingly ripped off" from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, England's great leader of legend is at once reduced and rejuvenated by some of the funniest antics introduced on a Broadway stage since ... well, since the dawn of another musical lovingly ripped off from a cult comedy classic: Mel Brooks' The Producers."

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF Spamalot

    March 17, 2009: "Though billed as "lovingly ripped off" from 1975's "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Spamalot truthfully has only a tangential relationship to that deeply cynical satire of class and history. Original troupe member Eric Idle has recycled and rearranged iconic scenes and lines - the killer rabbit, taunting Frenchman, clip-clop coconuts, "I'm not dead yet" - but with a jaunty brio much at odds with film's damp, dreary realism. Show seems the product of addicts who delightedly remember key routines but haven't seen the movie for years."

  • NEW YORK DAILY NEWS REVIEW OF Spamalot

    March 17, 2005: "All too often I was reminded of Mamma Mia! - the Python fans around me greeted familiar routines the way the Mamma Mia! audience laughed when it recognized the ABBA songs in their new context. This kind of "recycling" encourages the audience to congratulate itself for what it already knows, rather than experience anything fresh. (Maybe that's not a bad thing, since Mamma Mia! is likely the most successful musical in theater history.)"

  • AM NEW YORK REVIEW OF Spamalot

    March 17, 2005: "Monty Python's Spamalot is so polished and user-friendly, in fact, that those whose adolescences were irreparably warped by "The Holy Grail" - and we know who we are - will miss the low-budget flick's spiky, unapologetic anarchy."

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF Spamalot

    March 17, 2005: "The folks who've crafted Spamalot as if piecing together a gaudy Tinkertoy haven't just reexamined what made musicals of the '40s and '50s entertain large audiences. They've scampered back to the '30s, when musicals were built around stage clowns like Bert Lahr and Ed Wynn, and even farther back to the '20s, when it was virtually a requirement that frivolous plots end with a wedding."
