Exhilaratingly silly summer fun at the Royal Hippodrome

‘Spamalot’, the latest freewheeling production from the Royal Hippodrome, shouldn’t work. Think about it. A zany musical based on all-time comedy classic ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ , complete with power ballads and satirical jabs at Broadway?
