Spamalot, the much loved Monty Python musical, written by Eric Idle, has come back to London’s Theatreland and the Playhouse Theatre.
The story, of course, is of King Arthur and it follows him (and the Knights of the Round Table) as they journey the length and breadth of the country to find the Holy Grail.
Robin Armstrong plays King Arthur and Sarah Earnshaw is Lady of the Lake.
The musical score boasts such well known songs as He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights Of The Round Table, Find Your Grail and Always Look on The Bright Side Of Life which was originally from the Monty Python film The Life of Brian. The musical also features Eric Idle himself as God (see small print).
The Playhouse is down on the Embankment just behind the Charing Cross Hotel. As such it is quite easy to get south of the river giving you the opportunity to benefit from deals on hotels there – often much cheaper than in the West End itself. That said you can’t beat a West End theatre for a London Theatre Break so take a look at the Strand Palace Hotel up on the Strand.
