Photo Coverage: London Spamalot Party for Beale & Sieber
Tuesday night, the cast of London's Spamalot threw a party for Simon Russell Beale's opening night while Saturday night the entire cast wished Christopher Sieber "Bon Voyage" as he headed back to New York, and back into Spamalot on Broaway for a limited six-week run. When the party at the Palace Theatre ended the cast headed over to the legendary Phoenix Artist Club under the Phoenix Theatre.
Monty Python's Spamalot, the Tony Award-winning Best Musical of 2005, opened at London's Palace Theatre in October of 2006. Directed by Mike Nichols, Monty Python's Spamalot features music by the Grammy-winning team of John Du Prez and Eric Idle and a book by Eric Idle, "lovingly ripped-off" from the screenplay of the Pythons' best- loved film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. The show, which continues to break box office records at the Shubert Theatre, won numerous Tony Awards--including Best Musical and Best Director (Mike Nichols).
Beale succeeds Tim Curry as King Arthur. The production also stars Hannah Waddingham who plays The Lady of the Lake, David Birrell as Patsy, Tom Goodman-Hill as Sir Lancelot, Robert Hands as Sir Robin, Tony Timberlake as Sir Bedevere and Darren Southworth as Prince Herbert. Graham McDuff will succeed Sieber in London
