Monty Python`s Spamalot is back to the Broadway

The Tony Award®–winning Best Musical comedy Monty Python’s Spamalot returns to Broadway at the St. James Theatre.

Spamalot is the first production from the Kennedy Center’s Broadway Center Stage series to transfer to Broadway since its inception in 2018 under Finn’s leadership. Josh Rhodes (Bright Star, Cinderella) will return from the Kennedy Center production to direct and choreograph on Broadway.

The musical features a book & lyrics by Eric Idle and music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle. The original Broadway production was nominated for fourteen Tony Awards® and won three, including Best Musical, Best Direction of a Musical (Mike Nichols), and Best Featured Actress (Sara Ramirez as The Lady of the Lake) and featured choreography by Casey Nicholaw.

"I’m thrilled to see SPAMALOT back on Broadway,” said Eric Idle. “More than ever, it seems we need a good laugh and it's inspiring to see audiences still embracing this, the most happy of shows I have ever worked on. So put the News Cycle on Rinse Cycle and take a couple of hours to relax with the Lady of the Lake, King Arthur and the Knights Who Say Ni because we're not dead yet!"

“As we near the almost 20th anniversary of the original production, it is a great honour to restore SPAMALOT’s place on Broadway for fans who have longed for its return and for new audiences to meet the Knights of the Round Table for the first time,” said producer Jeffrey Finn. “I’m thrilled to continue the Kennedy Center’s legacy of bringing great productions from D.C. to audiences in the town that never sleeps – Camelot!... I mean, New York!”

Cast members of the show are Taran Killam as Lancelot, Tony nominee Christopher Fitzgerald as Patsy, Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart as King Arthur, Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer as The Lady of the Lake, Tony nominee Ethan Slater as The Historian/Prince Herbert, Jimmy Smagula as Sir Bedevere, Drama Desk Award winner Michael Urie as Sir Robin, and Nik Walker as Sir Galahad.

Performances begin Tuesday, October 31, 2023, and the official opening night is Thursday, November 16, 2023.
