Full Monty 

Spanalot outdoes its inspiration.

Monty Python's Spamalot, the Broadway musical that comes to Playhouse Square tonight, managed to do what its movie inspiration couldn't: win tons of awards. While Monty Python and the Holy Grail is indisputably one of the funniest films ever made, it couldn't even muster a measly technical nomination at the 1975 Oscars. The play, on the other hand, snagged a Tony for 2005's best musical, a Drama Desk Award for best musical, and a Grammy for best musical show album. Spamalot — penned by Monty Python's Eric Idle — pretty much follows the movie's plot: King Arthur and his trusty knights search for the Holy Grail amid shrubbery, farting Frenchmen, and deadly bunnies.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sundays, 1 & 6:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 4. Continues through Oct. 15
