Mr. Andrews doesn't expect the audience members to be fanatical followers of, or even familiar with, the madcap British comedy troupe that spawned Spamalot. So Mr. Andrews has slowed things down, making the show more accessible and understandable. The result is an enjoyable, exuberant, and still sharp-edged musical."
