The Broadway musical.
If you're a fan of the Monty Python films, then you know this is the musical version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
If you've never heard of Monty Python OR Spamalot, then I feel bad for you.
The Monty Python films are comedies full of silly humor, and are at times, a bit crude, but hilarious none the less. Here's one of my favorite scenes from the film...
Seriously, "I fart in your general direction" has GOT to be one of the most famous movie lines of all time. Yes? Anyway- back to the musical. If you've never heard of Spamalot, perhaps you've heard of Grey's Anatomy?
Yup. Dr. Torres and Lady of the Lake from Spamalot are one in the same.. and get this- she won a TONY for it, y'all. She was amazeballs in this production, and here's proof:
see? She's fab, right? Also, Frasier's brother and the nasty hotel guy from Home Alone 2 were in the original Broadway production as well. Ya know, just FYI.
So why am I telling you all this? Because Spamalot will be playing in my fair city at the end of March, and I'm crazy excited to tell you that I'll be playing Lady of the Lake. Yup. Crazy excited.
