Monty Python’s SPAMALOT is a musical comedy ”lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Like the film, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but it differs from the film in many ways.  The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols with Eric Idle writing the musical’s book and lyrics, won three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical of the 2004-05 season and received 14 Tony Award nominations.

BOBDIREX will be presenting the first Indianapolis production of this musical at the historic Athenaeum Theatre.  This is the fourth summer musical presented through BOBDIREX following the success of A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, CAMP ROCK, and last summer’s CABARET.
All performances are at the Athenaeum Theatre, 401 East Michigan Street at Massachusetts Avenue.  Show dates are June 14-15, 20-23 and 28-29. All performances are at 7:30 pm with a 3 pm matinee on June 23.  Seating is reserved at $25 with discounts for seniors and groups of 20 or more.  Reservations can be made by calling 317-280-0825 (no credit charge) or by going to our website at http://www.bobdirex.com/.
The theatre has a full bar.  Parking is metered on street and paid parking is available in a lot next to the theatre.  Dinner and cocktails are available before and after performances at the famous Rathskeller restaurant in the basement of the building. The reservation number there is 317-636-0396.
I hope you’ll be able to attend one of the performances and share what you see as we continually attempt to grow and better entertain our city of Indianapolis.
