theatre review: spamalot

"Spamalot" presents one of those catch-22s in art criticism. As a production, it is uniformly excellent. As a comedy, it doesn't lend itself to analysis. Without recourse to literary interpretation - who wants a discussion on the Jungian perspective of the Knights Who Say "Ni!" - all that remains is to offer description. And description risks spoiling the experience. This review of "Spamalot" illustrates what happens when too much thought goes into trying to resolve these sort of esoteric problems.

Get Thee to a Shrubbery: See Spamalot
