The musical, "Monty Python's Spamalot," derives its title from the line "We eat ham and jam and Spam a lot" from the 1975 film, "Monty Python And The Holy Grail," on which the musical is based.
"Monty Python's Spamalot" makes its Lehigh Valley regional theater debut, July 9 - 27, Muhlenberg Summer Music Theatre (MSMT), Dorothy Baker Theatre, Muhlenberg College, 2400 Chew St., Allentown. Curtain is 8 p.m. Wednesdays- Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays.
Completely different: The 34th annual Muhlenberg Summer Music Theatre (MSMT) season continues with "Monty Python's Spamalot," opening July 9 and continuing through July 27, Baker Theatre, Trexler Pavilion for Theater and Dance, Muhlenberg College, 2400 Chew St., Allentown. "Spamalot," a 2005 Tony Award recipient for best musical, is adapted from the 1975 movie, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." The Python's Eric Idle wrote the book for the musical. Neil Innes, John du Prez and Idle wrote the music. Idle wrote the lyrics. Ed Bara, above left, plays King Arthur.
Lehigh Valley residents are fortunate that the Appalachian Trail passes through the northern section of the region.
People travel from all over the United States, North America and many foreign countries to hike it, one of the longest continuously marked trails in the world, passing through 14 states over mountains and through valleys from Maine to Georgia.
"Transformers: Age Of Extinction" is a transformative movie-going experience.
It's one of those movies that make you feel differently after you depart the movie theater.
The fourth installment of "Transformers" (seen in Imax 3D for this review), delivers for fans of the series as this summer's No. 1 blockbuster movie so far.
Annual flowers include some of the most colorful plants in home gardens. With a little extra care during early and mid-summer, you can keep them attractive right up to frost time.
The first rule in keeping annual flowers blooming is to cut off dead flowers so they won't go to seed. True annuals die after setting seed, and even those plants that don't die will be reduced in vigor.
