This spring, Broadway presents the New York premiere of Spamalot, the first stage musical to be derived from the works of the Pythons?Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin. Based on their 1975 feature film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the show is directed by Mike Nichols, with book by Eric Idle, who also contributed new songs written in collaboration with John Du Prez. The Museum celebrates the latest incarnation of Monty Python with a screening series featuring some of the best episodes from the Flying Circus (including, of course, the classic ?Spam? routine), plus material done by members of the team before and after the series.
