After previewing on February 14, 2005, Monty Python's Spamalot - a pun on the word Camelot - opened on March 17, 2005 at the Shubert Theater. This Broadway adaptation of the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, directed by Mike Nichols, and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, has been running to full houses. Considered to be one of the most hilarious comedies to hit the stage on Broadway in recent times, Monty Python's Spamalot was nominated for 14 Tony Awards in 2005, winning three for the Best Musical, Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical - Sara Ramirez, and Best Direction of a Musical - Mike Nichols.

By November 19, 2006, Monty Python's Spamalot has had 685 performances, with people asking for more.

Monty Python is not a name of a person, but is a group of British comedians and writers (one American among them) - John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, and the late Graham Chapman. These talented people were a part of Monty Python's Flying Circus, whose shows offered tirades against snobbishness of the British ruling class on BBC from 1969 to 1974. They offered satires of well-known intellectuals and cultural persons of the day, and also offered spoofs of European history.

Their style of inspired lunacy has created a niche for itself with the American audiences, enough to have encouraged them to make five movie to date. Monty Python's Spamalot outrageously tells the tale of the legendary King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail. In 2005, The New York Times called it the 'best musical to open on Broadway.' Monty Python's Spamalot features a bevy of beautiful showgirls, cows, killer rabbits, flatulent Frenchmen, and a chorus line of dancing knights.

Tickets For This Laugh-A-Minute Show

The Box Office at the 1,545 seats Shubert Theater offers Monty Python's Spamalot theater tickets. You may try your luck at the ticket desk, but the chances are that you may come back disappointed. The shows are all sold out, and you may find yourself having wasted your time in the long lines at the Shubert Theater.

As is the case with all the sold out shows, the weekend Monty Python's Spamalot theater tickets are more expensive than the tickets for the weekday shows. If standing in long lines does not suit you, you can avoid doing so by trying to obtain your Monty Python's Spamalot theater tickets from other equally reliable sources. People do buy their Monty Python's Spamalot theater tickets through dubious sources, such as the re-sale forums, through anonymous sellers at eBay, and from scalpers outside the theaters. This is very risky, and you may land up holding spurious tickets.

Your best bet, outside of obtaining tickets through the box office, are the many reputed ticket brokers, who deal with Broadway and Off-Broadway theater tickets.
