In honor of Opening Night for “Spamalot” at The Media Theatre, where I am playing King Arthur (one of my dream roles), I give you one of my favorite scenes from the movie on which the Broadway musical is based.
Like so many people, I remember quoting lines from this great classic during my high school days. Watching these grown men be so silly, and make a career doing it, completely sealed my fate.
From the moment I first saw this film in Pappy Parker’s Shakespeare class my junior year, I longed to play scenes like this one for a living. Now, I’m not only playing scenes like this one, I actually get to play THIS scene seven times a week!
How does life get any better?
Enjoy the clip, and, if you’re in the neighborhood, come on out to my court at Camelot! The cast is wonderful!! We eat ham and jam and Spam a lot, so bring your appetite for laughter!
