It will succeed on Broadway! Monty Python's Spamalot will return to Broadway this fall. The musical will begin performances on October 31 at the St. James Theatre, with opening night on November 16.

Spamalot is a spoof on the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which in turn is a parody of the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The show features now-famous songs including “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” “The Song That Goes Like This,” and “Find Your Grail.”

Josh Rhodes directs and choreographs the production, which premiered earlier this year at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Spamalot will be the first production of the Kennedy Center's Broadway Center Stage program, which presents musical revivals with Broadway talent in D.C., to transfer to Broadway.

The cast for the Kennedy Center production included Alex Brightman, James Monroe Iglehart, Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer, and Rob McClure. Additional casting and creative team for the Broadway run has yet to be announced.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is written by John Du Prez (music) and Eric Idle (book, music, and lyrics). Their musical premiered on Broadway in 2005 and ran for four years, earning 14 Tony Award nominations. The show won three, including Best Musical. The 2023 revival is Spamalot's first Broadway revival.
