Teenage boys who can’t help but sing whenever they see a can of Spam discovered the joys of musical theater when this mash-up of Monty Python’s films (mostly The Holy Grail) and some of their other film-and-TV-show sketches and songs won a Tony in 2005. Suddenly, a peculiar niche of nerd humor became mainstream, and we all crawled out of our parents’ basements to proclaim that we knew the British absurdist comedy troupe was great before you did. The Media Theatre’s production boasts first-class voices, including Tony-nominated and Barrymore-winning actress Ann Crumb. The across-the-board appeal of Eric Idle and John Du Prez’s hilarious show boasts dead-on parodies of other Broadway musicals and Las Vegas excess, so even if your inner doofus isn’t tickled by The Knights Who Say Ni, The Fisch Shlapping Dance and “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” Spamalot promises a fun night out.
Through Nov. 3, $25-$42, Media Theatre, 104 E. State St., Media, 610-891-0100, mediatheatre.org.
