Theater Review

Spam, anyone? The word has taken on new meaning since the British comedy troupe Monty Python began riffing on it several decades ago.

No longer merely a processed pork product, spam also refers to junk e-mail. It's a definition that would probably be even more delectable to the Pythons, whose Tony Award-winning musical, Spamalot, is delectably silly, refreshingly politically incorrect and just plain funny.

If you go Monty Python's Spamalotruns through March 18 at the Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N. Eutaw St. $34-$79. 410-547-SEAT or BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com.
