Last night I was able to see Spamalot at Playhouse on the Square here in Memphis. This was a community manager yelp event open to all yelpers. Since Shaun doesn't like the theater and I LOVE it I was super excited to attend with a group of people. I don't know why I just don't go more often on my own, it's not like there's interaction during the show. Point being, I was psyched, and since I never saw the Monty Python movie all the jokes were new to me.
The group met up at 7:30 in the lobby to grab a drink and meetup before the show. It was nice to see that I knew someone in the group, fellow Memphis blogger and foodie AC; I was also great to meet the Memphis Yelp Community manager before the show - she's so nice y'all! Before going in we got a picture of the group.
Playhouse on the Square was nice enough to give us front row tickets. Check out the view:
Although truth of the matter is there's no bad seat in the house - I've been to plenty of performances to be 100% sure of this statement.
I can't really testify if the right jokes from the movie made it in but I can say Spamalot is very funny. Memphis is so blessed to have several professional theater companies and Playhouse is my favorite - very talented people , great sets and great costumes. Spamalot provided plenty of political un-correctness, poked fun at our society, broke down the 4th wall for some audience interaction, and had some fun making fun of theater as well. The show runs through the 16th and I highly recommend you check it out.
After the show our group decided to yelp it up at Sweet Grass Next door. I had the Kentucky mule, yum! A perfect way to end the night. I'm looking forward to the next yelp event already and the next Playhouse show.
