Civic Lubbock Books WTF Series Of Shows

I’ll bet you’d never thought you’d read about “Broadway” stuff here.  Wait, wait, don’t go away yet, there’s a diamond hidden way up the rear of this years offerings from Civic Lubbock.  If the gang was looking for variety, they delivered it in spades. At the same time, they are catering to four very different audiences.  More after the break.


The highlight of Civic Lubbock’s season, has to be Monty Python’s “Spamalot”.  I thought this was one of those shows that would be too edgy and too cool for Lubbock, but it’s visiting in all it’s glory.  The show is loosely based (or as the Python’s say “ripped off” from Monty Python’s Holy Grail, with a little bit of the ‘Life Of Brian” in there as well).  At this point you’re either interested or your not, and if you haven’t seen “Holy Grail” yet, turn off your computer and go rent it right now.  So to have this show come to town is pretty awesome.

Now let’s backtrack a bit.  The first show of the season is a Cirque Du Soleil show called “Cirque Dreams Holidaze”.  The show will no doubt feature dance, gymnastics and dancing and wait…I actually fell asleep there for a moment.  The ‘Cirque” shows appeal to a certain group of people, and I’m not one of them.

Next of the list is a revival of “West Side Story” which just makes me say “why”.  This one has been done to death and in my opinion the material is incredibly outdated.

The Python’s latest plays next and then the season closes out with another “WTF”?  Do we really need the “Elvis Lives” Broadway show?

I’m sure all of these ‘event’s will find some type of audience in the Hub, I mostly just wanted to bring “Spamalot” to your attention.  That’s the type of show that can actually bring non-theater goers out to the theaters.  Maybe next years we can get “The Book Of Mormon” (from the creators of South Park).

If any of this interests you at all, here’s a link to the Civic Lubbock Website.
