I was psyched that I got a chance to catch 'Spamalot' at the Surflight Theatre on L.B.I. last Sunday, and if you're a Monty Python fan, this is a must-see show.

The cast was excellent in this musical that's been 'lovingly ripped off' from the motion picture 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

"An orgy of sublime silliness", is what Chuck Darrow of philly.com calls it, and I concur.

The Surflight Theatre on 201 Engleside Avenue in Beach Haven ('Broadway at the beach since 1950') is a fine venue to see the show, with a long and successful history at the Jersey Shore.

From surflight.org:

Founded in 1950 by Joseph P. Hayes, Surflight Theatre is Ocean County's oldest professional AEA theatre company and has a rich local history.

Now in our 65th year, Surflight Theatre continues to grow and provide those who venture to Long Beach Island, an unforgettable getaway experience.

Surflight has been the home of many accomplished theatre professionals as well as serving as a training ground for students interested in pursuing a career in the theatre.

If you miss this show, I fart in your general direction. :-D

In order to avoid this unpleasantness, let me suggest you pick up your tickets while you still have a chance (the show only runs until this Sunday, August 24th).
