Spamalot: my 11th time

And so it came to pass, I went to see Spamalot again!

With Mariah and Gaby just before the show
I would never go and see the show again alone (very unlikely); the pleasure is now derived from showing it to others and seeing them enjoy it. My friend Gaby had to give away her ticket when I took a group to watch the show in Brighton last December, but she was still keen to see it - so I took her (along with my other friend Mariah) to see one of the last performances at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.

When I last saw the show with Mariah a few weeks ago, King Arthur was played by Jon Culshaw, but this time it was played by Marcus Brigstocke, so it was good for Mariah and I to see the different ways they both tackled the role.

After the performance, we had a chance to chat with some of the cast and take some pics.

Needless to say, we all had a fantastic time. No matter how many times I see it, I can never see the stage properly due to my tears of laughter.

Spamalot resumes at the Playhouse, London in November. Go and see it - it is SO funny! It's the best cure for depression there is, way better than anything Big Pharma has to offer.
