Sorry fans of the ABC sitcom “Cavemen,” the touring production of Defending the Caveman isn’t about those particular, Geico-promoting early humans, but rather about Mars/Venus observations on the differences between men and women. Like the ABC sitcom, though, the material isn’t particularly fresh (many. . .

Monty Python’s loopy musical

Welcome to the wonderfully wicked, wacky-world wisdom of Monty Python’s Spamalot, a daft musical running for a week at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts starting April 29. From flying cows to a killer rabbit, Spamalot is the loopiest musical (“lovingly ripped off” from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail) that ever trod theater boards in the 21st century. Or any other century, when it comes down to it. They’re all here from the King Arthur legend: Arthur himself and the Knights of the Round Table—principally Sir Galahad, Lancelot and Robin. Arthur tours Britain engaging courageous knights to assist in his quest for the Holy Grail, that chalice used by Jesus and His disciples at the Last Supper.
