Director Melissa Rain Anderson takes full advantage of the script’s wit and audacity, managing to draw bold performances from the stellar 17-member cast and orchestra in this fast-paced show that calls for swift scene and costume changes. The actors, one and all, deserve acclaim for not over-milking the broadness of the comedy and simply immersing themselves in it.
Puns, parodies, and a quest that even Indiana Jones couldn't resist. This is what makes Spamalot the ultimate live experience for Monty Python fans who want to sit back and have a rousing good time.

Geva favorite Melissa Rain Anderson -- who also directed Geva's "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" -- expertly directs "Spamalot." Anderson's direction is conscious of the physicality and timing needed for the quirky production to work.

I also must give the director, Melissa Rain Anderson, so much credit for putting together a wonderful and side-splitting show... it is one of the best, if not the best, musical performance I have ever seen.

Collin Arend

... sure-handed, gifted Melissa Rain Anderson’s bouncy direction and Lenny Daniel’s sharp choreography keep it moving briskly and performed with charm and solid skill.
