Spamalot to close on Broadway in 2009. And in London as well. And has already closed in Vegas.
Perhaps we should blame the slumping economy, or else Clay Aiken just wasn't the right man to play Arthur. While I am not and never will be a fan of musicals in general, I did quite enjoy the chance to see this fine production in New York on my very rare vacations. To those few fine folk who had the chance to see it in its original glory, congratulations to us. I will never get how a show about cats can go on for decades and good bawdy humor doesn't even make the five year mark. For those of you that haven't seen it yet, and care to, keep an eye out for the Tour coming to town.
