Monty Python’s Spamalot has announced its final performance on Broadway.

The musical will play its last show at the St. James Theatre on April 7, 2024. Tickets for the final dates are on sale now here.

The new production from director and choreographer Josh Rhodes transferred from Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center and opened last November.

Following its Broadway run, the show is set to tour North America in 2025.

Producer Jeffrey Finn said: “I am so proud of the entire cast, creative team, musicians and crew for their hard work and for delivering the highest level of joy and laughter back on Broadway when we need this more than ever.

“I’m also honored to continue the long legacy of Kennedy Center productions transferring to Broadway so audiences beyond D.C. can experience this glorious production of Spamalot at the St. James Theatre.”

Spamalot is a hilarious and irreverent musical comedy that lovingly parodies the legendary humour of Monty Python.

Inspired by the classic film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” the show takes audiences on a whimsical journey through King Arthur’s quest for the Holy Grail, filled with iconic characters, absurdity, and infectious songs that capture the spirit of the original Python sketches.

The production stars James Monroe Iglehart as King Arthur, Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer as The Lady of the Lake, Christopher Fitzgerald as Patsy, Ethan Slater as The Historian/Prince Herbert, Alex Brightman as Lancelot, Jimmy Smagula as Sir Bedevere, Jonathan Bennett as Sir Robin and Nik Walker as Sir Galahad.

The show features a book and lyrics by Eric Idle with music from Idle and John Du Prez.

The show premiered on Broadway in 2005 before a West End bow a year later. It was revived in London in 2012 and last seen on tour in the UK in 2017.
