Whatever the word, everybody but Terry Jones (one of the Python boys) agrees that Eric Idle has managed to bring the funny with Spamalot. As you most likely know, its a Tony Award-winning retelling of Monty Python & The Holy Grail, liberally spiced with pieces of The Life of Brian and parodies and assorted Broadway musicals. Hewing close to the original, Spamalot has managed to attract the love of critics and audiences alike, and now its coming here to seek the Grail in our very own backyard. (Actually, that would be The Arscht Center, so recently known as The Carnival Center, at 1300 Biscayne Blvd. The Grails not there, by the way. Ive checked. Dont tell them.) The show runs from March 4 to 9, and tickets run $24 - $72. Visit ticketmaster.com.
