NightBlue Performing Arts Company, known for its black box productions of RENT, and last year's Jeff Nominated AVENUE Q!,presents "Monty Python's Spamalot!" the musical comedy "lovingly ripped off from" the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but differs from the film in many ways.

"...But in this staging by NightBlue Performing Arts Company, who can't seem to tell the difference between silliness and inspired lunacy, the show's flaws—notably Idle's cloying self-referential humor—become glaringly obvious. The production has a few impressive moments, including some fabulous tap dances, but not enough to make it feel like anything but lukewarm leftovers."

Chicago Theatre Review - Recommended
"...The scaled down version of “Spamalot” has a big heart, and some great theatrical innovations. The execution of cast members taking on two or three roles is great. The musical numbers fill the small stage at 773 with frenetic dancing. The actors seem to be having a great time throughout the show. It crosses over to the audience in so many ways. Using every inch of the space provided, this show has an intimacy of a comedy club."
