Never quite sure when the critics give a show 5* rating and say how fantastic it is, but this time they were right. It is a full-on laugh out loud evening with superb voices, dazzling costumes and brilliant action throughout the whole performance. Characters were soon established and every one of the cast played their part with enthusiasm! It was not Les Dennis in the lead when we saw it, but Robin Armstrong was excellent. What were the best bits? The manservant using coconut shells for the sound of horses’ hooves as King Arthur gallops around the stage, the chap who is “not dead yet!”, the Lady of the Lake (powerful voice) whingeing about her part, and the Knight in silver tights and sparkly thong – what more can I say? Look out for a quick sight of Boris whizzing across the back of the stage on a bicycle The action never slowed and the audience enjoyed it to the end. As you would expect, It is very English humour,especially the unflattering depiction of the French soldiers, but definitely a feel-good show that leaves you smiling all the way home. Playing at London’s Playhouse Theatre (I left the underground at Charing Cross, out of the main entrance then keep walking down the street to your left). You can book online through ticketmaster, ATG tickets or via the official Spamalot site for a special offer of 2for1 on a Tuesday – definitely a bargain.
