There Might Be Some Minutes Needed To Warm Up To Appreciate Its Value But MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT Is A Good Watch

There was a weird feeling upon entering the Carlos Romulo Auditorium at RCBC Plaza in Makati. The usual theatre patrons I know are the audience of CCP’s Tanghalang Pilipino or some other community groups and campus organizations. The crowd at RCBC Plaza’s theatre venue was the alta sociedad. Mostly.

So I wondered, this might not be for me.

But it has nothing to do with this pseudo review. At least directly. But the target market can be a strong measure on sensitivity and brand of comedy of the comedy play MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT.

At first, I wasn’t able to buy the antics. Thou the majority of the audience were laughing non-stop. I thought the stage design was a bit elementary. The punchlines were cliches, methodical and forced. The storytelling was too playful to be considered good. And the acting was too old school.

But past the half, I started to appreciate its irreverent humor. And the singing was outstanding, I noticed. And if you want an art form to break the 4th wall, this can be one of the plays that you’re looking for.

For a casual audience like me, there might be some minutes needed to warm up to appreciate its value but SPAMALOT, with its well-crafted material, is an important theatre play. Regardless of your preferred brand of art and comedy.
