      The hit Broadway Musical Spamalot, "lovingly" ripped from the major motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Despite the production's humorous nature, it is rich with nods to classical Arthurian legends and common myths of contemporary society.

    This production also proposes an intelligent critique of various academic disciplines that put their political biases first before presenting factual historical accounts. My dramaturgy work covered a variety of concepts brought up during the rehearsal process such as Marxist Historians, Various Arthurian Legends, questioning the historical accuracy of catapulted cadavers in the Middle Ages, and many more!
