Tuesday, July 22-July 26
Camelot has inspired centuries of writers and artists swept up in the history, fantasy and lore of brave knights, fair maidens and bold quests for treasure and salvation. In 1975, it inspired a little flick called Monty Python and the Holy Grail, starring Britain’s most infamous comedy troupe. Irreverent, absurd and as perfect as parody gets, the film became a cult classic that finally made its way to the stage in 2005 as the hilarious musical Monty Python’s Spamalot. MP alumnus Eric Idle wrote the book and lyrics putting King Arthur and his Round Table knights on a quest for the ultimate relic and to stage a Broadway musical despite encounters with monster rabbits and snooty Frenchmen. Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma brings Spamalot to the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave., as part of its summer musical season. The show runs from Tuesday, July 22, to Saturday, July 26. Tickets are $35-$74 each, available at www.lyrictheatreokc.com.
