SPAMALOT opened at Broadway's Shubert Theatre on Thursday, March 17, 2005. David Hyde Pierce, Tim Curry and Hank Azaria head the cast of the musical and are joined by Christopher Sieber, Michael McGrath, Steve Rosen, Christian Borle, and Sara Ramirez. Stay tuned for photos from the show's after-party.

The show tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and their quest for the Holy Grail and is one of this season's most eagerly anticipated new musicals. Directed by Mike Nichols, 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 an entirely new score featuring music and lyrics by Eric Idle and John Du Prez, along with three songs from the 1975 film. It is playing at Broadway's Shubert Theatre, 225 West 44th Street.
