Friday, December 27: Monty Python’s Spamalot. 6:15 p.m. Boulder’s Dinner Theatre, 5501 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder, 303- 449-6000.
Monty Python is great in any form, even in a musical. And hey, since the troupe’s classic movies already contain hilarious, catchy songs, it was a natural step to translate the group’s signature humor to the stage. The musical begins with a narrator introducing a grand tale taking place in ancient England. Of course, the cast mishears, and the opening song-and-dance number merrily celebrates the wonders of Finland. Ah, Spamalot. ’Tis a silly musical.
