‘Royal Hilarity’

Gwendolyn Rice from The Isthmus calls Four Seasons Theatre’s Spamalot “Royal Hilarity – “Spamalot” captures the irreverent spirit of Monty PythonRoyal hilarity”

“Christiaan Smith-Kotlarek’s gorgeous baritone as Sir Galahad is a great match for his duet partner, Samantha Sostarich and her killer soprano as the Lady of the Lake. One almost wishes they had a standard love song to sing instead of the ironic tongue-in-cheek number “The Song that Goes Like This.” Brassy and bold, Sostarich is a powerhouse, and as she states over and over in the musical, it’s a shame her character doesn’t have more stage time.”

Four Seasons’ ‘Spamalot’ brings the sunshine

Aaron R. Conklin of Madison Magazine says “Four Seasons’ ‘Spamalot’ brings the sunshine”!

“Most of the songs are designed to caustically tweak the conventions of Broadway musicals—numbers like “The Song That Goes like This,” a song that finds Christian Smith-Kotlarek’s manly Sir Galahad and Samantha Sostarich’s diva-esque Lady of the Lake deconstructing the beats of the stereotypically sweeping romantic anthem. Both of them have powerful soaring voices, making this one of the show’s high points.”
