Photo Coverage: Spamalot Box Office Opens
The Shubert box office opened on Monday December 6th for MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT. Ticket buyers who braved the cold received a free snack of Hormel's new golden honey grail flavor, created to celebrate SPAMALOT's imminent arrival on Broadway. The first one hundred ticket buyers received a a free can of the rare, extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime can of SPAM, and a free poster signed by Python alum and the show's writer, Eric Idle.
Also out to celebrate the event was the official SPAM-mobile, and a slew of knights and wenches entertaining the line of buyers. Oh, and let's not forget a killer rabbit as well.
Monty Python's SPAMALOT is directed by the legendary Mike Nichols and stars David Hyde Pierce, Tim Curry and Hank Azaria. The show begins previews at Broadway's Shubert Theatre (225 West 44th St.) on February 14, 2005, and opens on March 17. SPAMALOT will arrive on Broadway following a five-week World Premiere engagement at Chicago's Shubert Theatre (December 21, 2004 - January 23, 2005).
