PYTHON'S SPAMALOT TO SET WORLD RECORD
“Monty Python's Spamalot to Taunt Guinness World Records™,” the March 17 press release reads. In honor of the first anniversary of the Broadway show, the cast and crew of Spamalot will invite fans and audience members to celebrate with the World's Largest Coconut Orchestra this Wednesday.
Following the matinee performance on Wednesday, March 22, any peasant or serf willing to join the quest is invited to gather in Shubert Alley (located between West 44th and West 45th Streets between Broadway and 8th Avenue), to go for the Guinness World Record™ for the “World’s Largest Coconut Orchestra.”
Ticket holders for the Wednesday, March 22 matinee of Monty Python's
Spamalot will automatically participate in this record-setting event.
After filling out an extremely brief registration form, each ticket
holder will receive a pair of complimentary coconuts upon exiting the
theatre. Soon after the curtain comes down at 4:20pm the audience, coconuts
in hand, will be led into Shubert Alley, where Michael McGrath (who
plays "Patsy," the coconut-playing sidekick to King Arthur)
will lead the crowd in a lesson on the art of coconut playing. After
a brief rehearsal, the Shubert Alley crowd will be led in a performance
of "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," where they will
clop coconuts in the place the song's whistles.
