'Big Laughs and Boundless Silliness'
Spamalot is A Hit!

Photo by: Bruce Bennett

If you have not seen Spamalot, grab your shrubbery and head toward The Hobby Center! TUTS production of Monty Python's Spamalot plays NOW - Sunday, May 26. Tickets!

Critic's Corner:

“If silly is your favorite entertainment flavor, Theatre Under The Stars has a feast for you with its current staging of Spamalot - one of the silliest musicals ever…Returning in TUTS' energetic, game-for-anything rendition, "Spamalot" impresses pretty much as it did in its 2005 Broadway premiere and the 2007 tour."

- Everett Evans, The Houston Chronicle

“Fans of Monty Python's body of work will find themselves highly amused by the constant barrage of references to their more iconic characters and skits, while those unfamiliar with Monty Python will find themselves rolling in the aisles with laughter for entirely different reasons." Read more...
- David Clarke,

“Even if you've never heard of Monty Python -- which seems inconceivable! -- Spamalot, the Tony Award-winning Best Musical of 2005, will thoroughly amuse. It beats you over the head with such sublime comedy, low and high, that you're left helpless, sore from laughing. This isn't three-card monte, it's the entire deck. Deal me in!” Read more...
- D.L. Groover, Houston Press

“This extravagant show has “lovingly ripped off” Monty Python’s 1975 classic film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and the result resembles a grand and gargantuan vaudeville show consisting of hilarious skits and overblown production numbers that do more than catch our attention—they demand that we stay glued to the stage lest we miss another glorious opportunity to laugh big laughs and revel in the boundless silliness.” Read more...
- Buzz Bellmont, Houston Chronicle Online
