Spamalot Asks For A Return Engagement!



BroadwayWorld.com also has an article announcing Clay Aiken's return to his role as Sir Robin in Spamalot:Clay Aiken Returns As 'Sir Robin' In Spamalot Clay Aiken will return to the scene of his triumphant Broadway debut in the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Monty Python's SPAMALOT this Fall. Clay's debut on Broadway earlier this year was met with wild enthusiasm from both his legion of fans and the New York press. He will reprise the role of 'Sir Robin ' at the Shubert Theatre from September 19 2008 - January 4 2009.
When he made his Broadway debut in SPAMALOT at the beginning of this year, Newsday said "Aiken is a charmer" and the Associated Press said that "Clay Aiken deftly handles supremely silly."


Clay Aiken became a music superstar following his success on the "American Idol" television series, and has sold more than six million albums; co-authored a best-selling book; and, played six sold-out concert tours, said "Since leaving SPAMALOT in May, jokes have just not been funny. Food has lost its taste. The grass is no longer green -- the sky no longer blue. And, babies WON'T stop crying!! I'm so excited about coming back to the funniest show in the world!" [...]

Clay Aiken was perfect in his role as Sir Robin (among others). I can see why he is back by popular demand.

Clay "knocked 'em dead" with his last run in Spamalot. I am looking forward to reading the excellent reviews for this run also.

Newsday had it right when they said, "Clay is a charmer." I cannot wait to see Clay Aiken again in Spamalot. It will be wonderful to see Shubert Alley alive with excitement again.

The name "Clay Aiken" definitely does bring attention to articles and shows. His run was extremely successful. He took a role that had been around for quite a while and he made it into his own by his great mannerisms and comedic approach. Can't wait to see him again.

What an honor to be asked back to the role of Sir Robin. Clay Aiken was well received there and I'm sure he has been missed by the cast. I'm going to be able to see him this time around.
