Thanks a lot, 'Spamalot'

Posted by Katie Johnston Chase January 18, 2008 10:41 AM

Sometimes I forget, amid all the talk of how enriching and moving and thought-provoking the arts are supposed to be, that the arts are really all about entertainment. I don't know if "Spamalot" counts as "arts," exactly, what with all the fart jokes and general buffoonery, but I do know that last night's performance at the Opera House sure put my husband in a better mood.

He was distracted and grouchy at the beginning of the Monty Python-based show, but after a few chuckles at the singing, bumbling knights onstage, and a joyous showering of confetti at the end, his good nature was restored.

So thanks, "Spamalot," without you it might have been a long night.
