TUTS presents Spamalot! Pure fun date night!

Back by popular demand, Monty Python’s SPAMALOT is the outrageous musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the film classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” With music and lyrics by the Grammy-Award winning team of Eric Idle and John Du Prez and book by Mr. Idle, SPAMALOT tells the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. Flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen and show-stopping musical numbers are just a few of the reasons audiences everywhere are eating up SPAMALOT.

And here are the comment from our Kidnnected reviewer:
Pure fun for our Date Night.  I’m a bigger fan of Monty Python than my husband, but I caught him laughing along too.  The best moments of the night were when the actors got so caught up in the comedy that they broke character and started laughing along too.  The singing was spectacular, top notch voices, and the comedic timing was spot on.  We had an evening of just pure entertainment.  Absolute fun.
Q: What was the goal of the evening:
1) A shared athletic experience
2) A shared emotional experience
3) A shared intellectual experience
4) A shared escapism experience (pure silly fun)
A:  Definitely 4 – a shared escapism experience.
Q: Did the date feel more:
1) Geared for the woman (i.e. “chick flick”)*
2) Geared for the man (i.e. sporting event)*
3) Appealed to both sexes
*(Not that men can’t enjoy love stories or women can’t enjoy a good game….)
A: It appealed to both of us.  It would appeal to a Monty Python fan over someone who hasn’t heard of them, but the novice would still enjoy the silliness.
As you finished the activity, were you more inclined to:
1) Go right to sleep, you’re both exhausted
2) Go to a coffee shop or some place you could talk about the experience
3) Go home and enjoy some cuddle** time
**(or other intimate activities)
A: Go to a coffee shop and talk about our favorite moments.  Another one that made our night was the wounded soldier who sang, “The stars at night… are big and bright….” and then entire audience responded with the clapping and sang back, “Deep in the Heart of Texas!”
Did you find the location was:
1) Close to home, easy to get to and from and not keep the sitter too late
2) A little far from home – make sure to add travel time to the sitter’s fee
3) Didn’t have to leave the house to enjoy this date
A:  A little far (downtown), so I got a sitter I had used many times before and made the evening totally easy.  I ordered pizza and had sliced apples for them so dinner was a breeze.  I bathed the kids before I left so all she had to do was supervise the teeth-brushing and read them a bed time story.
Looking back on the evening:
1) This was a definite couple activity.
2) It would have been better to take a friend.
A: Either – I enjoyed it with him and I’d like to take a friend back before the show leaves Houston!
