Rachel Alejandro As Lady Of The Lake Heads Big Cast Of Hit Musical 'Spamalot' At RCBC Theatre, Makati From July 28 To August 12

 AFTER FILMING the much awaited movie version of ‘Ang Larawan, The Musical’ based on the classic play of National Artist Nick Joaquin, Rachel Alejandro as the Lady of the Lake now leads the big cast of “Monty Python’s Spamalot”, the hit West End and Broadway musical that the New York Times calls “resplendently silly.”

It has received numerous awards, including The Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, the Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, and the highly coveted Tony Award for Best Musical in 2005.

“Spamalot” tells a highly irreverent version of the story of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail. This “laff-a-minute show” is based on the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, one of the funniest comedies of all time according to Total Film, ABC, Channel 4 UK, and many other film authorities.

The Philippine production of “Spamalot” will feature several exclusive gowns by renowned designer Francis Libiran and will have a limited run: all weekends between July 28 and August 12 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza in Makati. Tickets at P2,000 (Orchestra Center), P1,800 (Orchestra Side), P1,500 (Loge), and P1,000 (Balcony).

Aside from Rachel, “Spamalot” stars Roxy Aldiosa, Reb Atadero, Rachel Coates, Domi Espejo, Carla Guevara-Laforteza, Lorenz Martinez, Noel Rayos, Bibo Reyes, Dean Rosen, George Schulze, Edrei Tan, and Chino Veguillas. Directed by Joel Trinidad and Nicky Triviño. Musical direction by Onyl Torres. Choreography by the Martinez Sisters.
