Monty Python's take on King Arthur's legendary search for the Holy Grail provided rich fodder for a smash Broadway musical—which will be presented on stage at the Somerset Valley Playhouse, complete with killer rabbits, cows and perhaps a few knights-who-say-you-know-what, starting Friday.
"Monthy Python's Spamalot" was a smash on Broadway, with music co-written by original Python member Eric Idle. The Somerset Valley Players' version, directed by Howard Whitmore with musical direction by Teddy Kernizan, runs through Oct. 6.
Here's a roundup of some other things to keep you busy this weekend:
