The Muny presents John O'Hurley in the first show of its fantastic 95th Season, Monty Python's Spamalot, directed and choreographed by Denis Jones. The show opened last night, June 17, and you can check out highlights from the festivities below!
Mr. O'Hurley returns to The Muny as King Arthur. He debuted at The Muny in the 1986 production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. John is best known as "J. Peterman" on Seinfeld, which is now the #1 syndicated show in the world and can be seen in 85 countries. John won a Screen Actors Guild Award for his work on Seinfeld.
Based on the 1975 film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Spamalot has a book by Eric Idle and music by John Du Prez. Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and raises silliness to an art form. Monty Python's Spamalot is the winner of three Tony Awards including Best Musical.
The Muny production features scenic design by Sam and Steve Gilliam, sound design by Jason Krueger, lighting design by Seth Jackson and costume design by Leon Dobkowski. Ben Whiteley serves as the musical director, and the production stage manager is Nevin Hedley.
