Python Fans: Spamalot gets Tony for best Musical

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by FenderBender, Jun 6, 2005.

  1. Eric Idols Spamalot (based losely on the holy grail) wins Tony's for best musical, best director, and best actress.

    Just thought Python fans would be interested.
  2. Good for them.

    Those Monty Python guys always looked on the bright side of life! :p

    Mike :D

    Great news :) good to see that Eric is carrying on the good work. And good to see it is still appreciated!

    Still such a shame Graham isn't around. :(
  4. It was a little odd for me to see Spamalot get Tony Awards. Considering the fact that most of the Python group's humour was a little too sophisticated for the general public.

    He is still sorely missed :( if you haven't read it, I can highly recommend his autobiography, 'A Liars Autobiography'. Extremely funny and very honest.

    That's pretty cool. I wonder what the musical is really like. I saw a clip on the news and it looked just like a complete adaptation.

    MP as a group and show I don't like for the most part, but Holy Grail is one of my favorite movies.
