Ryan Cowles, Joe Beuerlein, Adam Grabau and Jason Elliott Brown in “Spamalot.” The musical version of Monty Python’s hit film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” will play at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood for a limited one-week engagement, Feb. 28 - March 4. Tickets are available at www.broadwayLA.org.

 

Monty Python's "Spamalot" - the Tony Award-winning Best Musical of 2005 - will return to Los Angeles, playing a strictly limited one week engagement Feb. 28 - March 4, at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.

Tickets for "Spamalot" may be purchased online at www.BroadwayLA.org or by phone at 1-800-982-ARTS(2787).

Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Pantages Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets. The Pantages Theatre is located at 6233 Hollywood Blvd., just east of Vine Street, and the box office opens daily at 10 a.m.

Joe Beuerlein plays several roles in the two hour show, which is recommended for ages 12 and older.

Beuerlein portrays the Historian, Minstrel, Brother Maynard and a French Guard in his first national tour.

"It's a lot of fun," he said. "It's a lot of work and I have to change a lot backstage but I get to play many of the characters from the movie. It's a blast."

Beuerlein said he was a fan of the film as a child.

"I remember as a child my brother and I would quote from the film incessantly," he said. "Getting to be a part of it on stage is just beyond words."

"Spamalot" is "lovingly ripped-off" from the internationally famous comedy team's most popular motion picture, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

"Spamalot" won three 2005 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Director (Mike Nichols), as well as the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for Best Musical. The original cast recording of Monty Python's "Spamalot" won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

The show tells (with humor) the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail.

"Spamalot" features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits and one legless knight.
Leading the cast of "Spamalot" are Arthur Rowan as King Arthur and Brittany Woodrow as The Lady of the Lake, with Michael J. Berry (Patsy), Adam Grabau (Sir Lancelot, The French Taunter, King Ni, Tim the Enchanter), Jacob L. Smith (Sir Galahad, Black Knight, Father), Kasidy Devlin (Sir Robin), Thomas DeMarcus (Mayor, Dennis' Mother, Sir Bedevere, Concorde), James David Larson (Not Dead Fred, Prince Herbert) and Joe Beuerlein (Historian, Minstrel, Brother Maynard, French Guard). Rounding out the company are Kimber Benedict, Jason Elliott Brown, Ryan Cowles, Carl DeForrest Hendin, Amanda Johns, Andrew Leggieri, Melissa Denise Lopez, McKayla Marso, Jesse Palmer, Tiffani Robbins, Jared Titus and Bradley Allan Zarr.

The one-week performance schedule for "Spamalot" will be Feb. 28 - March 4 at the Pantages Theatre, 6233 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028. Schedule: Tuesday - Friday at 8 p.m.; Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Tickets start at $25.
