Clay Aiken Joins Cast of Spamalot

by at . Comments

Clay Aiken is coming to Broadway.

Spamalot Star
The American Idol second-season runner-up will play the role of Sir Robin in Monty Python's Spamalot, making his debut in the Tony Award-winning musical on January 18 at the Shubert Theatre.

"I really couldn't have asked for a more wonderful group of people to work with," said Aiken. "Let's not lie, the chance to work with legendary creative minds like [Spamalot director] Mike Nichols and [Spamalot co-author] Eric Idle is, on its own, a reason to jump at this opportunity. But, that's not all.

The producers and creative folks I have had the chance to meet and work with so far have been unbelievably welcoming and wonderful. They've really made me feel at home already, and I haven't even started yet!"

The 28-year-old will appear in the musical until May 4.

"Clay Aiken is amazing beyond that glorious voice. Turns out he is an excellent comic actor and a master of character," said Nichols. "People will be surprised by his wide ranging talent, since the first impression is of great country charm and a singer to remember. This guy is not only a star, he is a lot more. We are lucky to get him for Spamalot."

I live in GA but came from MI. I will be going to see Clay in Kazoo. Does anyone know if there will be a meet and greet? I have asked on the OFC and no replies.
