Gary Beach is New King Arthur in 'Spamalot' Tour

Direct from a tour stop at The Arsht Center in Miami, Tony Awardwinner and Broadway favorite Gary Beach will star as King Arthur, headlining the national tour of Monty Python's Spamalot at the Kravis Center March 11 - 16 presented by Stanford Broadway Across America - Palm Beach and Florida Theatrical Association.

Lovingly "rippedoff" from the internationally famous comedy team's most popular motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python's Spamalot is the winner of three 2005 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Director (Mike Nichols), as well as the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for Best Musical. The original cast recording of Monty Python's Spamalot recently won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail, Monty Python's Spamalot features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits and one legless knight. Directed by Mike Nichols, Monty Python's Spamalot features a book by Eric Idle, based on the screenplay of Monty Python and the Holy Grail by Monty Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, with music and lyrics by the Grammy Awardwinning team of Mr. Idle and John Du Prez. Casey Nicholaw is the choreographer.

Along side Gary Beach as King Arthur, the national tour of Monty Python's Spamalot will star Esther Stilwell as The Lady of The Lake, James Beaman as Sir Robin, Christopher Sutton as Prince Herbert, Ben Davis as Sir Dennis Galahad, Brad Bradley as Patsy, Christopher Gurr as Sir Bedevere and Patrick Heusinger as Sir Lancelot. The cast will also feature Matt Allen, Piper Lindsay Arpan, Julie Barnes, Graham Bowen, Jonathan Brody, Nigel Columbus, Timothy Connell, Cara Cooper, Erik Hayden, Jennifer Mathie, Angelina Mullins, Brian O'Brien, Lyn Philistine, TeraLee Pollin, Jennifer Rias, Darryl Semira and Paula Wise.
