Monty Python's Spamalot
The cast of “Monty Python’s Spamalot” can always tell if you’re a fan.
“King Arthur and Patsy enter, and they hear the coconuts,” said Glenn Giron, who plays Patsy. “If they go crazy, I imagine they’re going to be a big Python crowd.”
If you’re a fan of Monty Python in general and “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” in particular, you’ll know that the sound of coconuts being banged together indicates characters clippity-clopping about on horseback.
We’ll find out whether Springfield is Python-friendly at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, when the musical comes to Sangamon Auditorium at the University of Illinois Springfield. The show originally was scheduled to be performed at the Prairie Capital Convention Center, but presenter Broadway in Springfield decided to change venues earlier this year.
