Always look on the bright side of life, and you’ll be rewarded.
“Spamalot” is coming back to Broadway.
The Tony Award winning hilarious musical is exactly what we need right now.
After a 10 performance run at Washington’s Kennedy Center, the Monty Python musical will open in New York in November. Eric Idle wrote the book and lyrics, Idle wrote the music with John DuPrez. This time around, the director is Josh Rhodes. So far it’s a Kennedy Center production. We’re waiting to see which theater it’s going to, and who the New York producers are.
And what a cast! Alex Brightman, Leslie Kritzer, and Rob McClure — all from “Beetlejuice” — plus Tony Award winner James Monroe Inglehart, and Michael Urie.
“Spamalot” won Best Musical at the Tony Awards in 2005. Sara Ramirez won Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and Mike Nichols won Best Director of a Musical.
“Spamalot” will join “Merrily We Roll Along” among musical revivals this season headed for the June 2024 Tony Awards.
