Photo Flash: 'Spamalot' West End Guest Gala
The West End's Spamalot starring Peter Davison, Bill Ward and Hannah Waddingham, hosted a special guest gala on Tuesday September 11, with entertainment and theatre stars in attendance and at the after-party.
The London production of Monty Python's Spamalot began previews at the Palace Theatre on September 30, opening October 17.† Directed by Mike Nichols, Spamalot features 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, Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin.
"Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail, Spamalot features a chorus line of dancing divas (and serfs), flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits and a legless knight," according to press notes.
