Upstart Productions, fresh off its recent hits LOVE/SICK and INTO THE WOODS, presents the Philippine Premiere of the smash-hit Broadway musical MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT! Having left audiences “weak with laughter” (The Independent UK) everywhere from Australia to Hungary, from Serbia to Norway, from Japan to Ireland, and all over the United States and the United Kingdom, this “resplendently silly” show (New York Times) has received numerous accolades, including The Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, the Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, and the highly coveted Tony Award for Best Musical.
Co-directed by theater veteran (and Upstart founder) Joel Trinidad and rising theater star Nicky Triviño, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT tells a crazy version of the story of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail. This “laff-a-minute show” (Theatermania) is based on the film MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, one of the funniest comedies of all time according to Total Film, ABC, Channel 4 UK, and many other authorities.
The Philippine production of MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT will run on the Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays between July 28 and August 12 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza in Makati. Tickets at P2,000 (Orchestra Center), P1,800 (Orchestra Side), P1,500 (Loge), and P1,000 (Balcony).
