Spamalot Vegas Bound?

Though nothing is official at this time, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Eric Idle is in town, allegedly part of negotiations with Steve Wynn for a deal to open a Las Vegas production of the show. Avenue Q is set to open at the Vegas hotel in Late August, for which tickets are on sale now.

The irreverent musical blockbuster, which is based upon the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, opened at the Shubert on March 17th. In addition to the Best Musical Tony, Spamalot picked up the Best Director of a Musical Tony for Mike Nichols and Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Sara Ramirez. In addition, it won the 2005 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Musical.
The show's score is by Eric Idle and John Du Prez with a book by Idle, and in addition to Ramirez, it features Tim Curry, Hank Azaria, Christopher Sieber, Michael McGrath, Christian Borle and others as its loopy knights.

The Decca Broadway original cast recording of Monty Python's Spamalot has been in the Billboard Top 200 charts for the past seven weeks and is the fasting selling Broadway cast album since Rent.
