'Spamalot' musical based on Monty Python comes to Wabash

January 26, 2012

WABASH — Thank God we have a quest, and that quest will include laughter as the award winning Broadway musical “Spamalot” comes to the Wabash Honeywell Center’s Ford Theater Saturday, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m.
The show borrows liberally and unashamedly from the classic film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and features characters and sketches from the internationally acclaimed comedy team’s most famous film. With a book and lyrics by Monty Python’s Eric Idle and music by John Du Prez the musical tells the tale of King Arthur and his — rather offbeat — quest for the Holy Grail.
