A Møøse Once Bit My Sister...

David Hyde Pierce (top left), Tim Curry and Hank Azaria will be playing Sir Robin, King Arthur and Sir Lancelot (respectively) in Spamalot, the Broadway musical version of Monty Python & the Holy Grail when it hits the stage in December.
Spamalot is the long-hinted-at Broadway musical version of the legendary comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Casting has finally shown up for the December premiere of the musical in Chicago.

(David Hyde) Pierce, who was Dr. Niles Crane in the long-running U.S. sitcom "Frasier," will play Sir Robin. (Tim) Curry, known for his star turn in the cult film, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," will play King Arthur. (Hank) Azaria, best known as the voice of Moe the bartender on the animated series "The Simpsons," will portray Sir Lancelot.

The corresponding film roles were performed by Eric Idle, Graham Chapman and John Cleese of the British comedy troupe.

I'm really looking forward to this one.

And as luck would have it, I'm going home for Christmas this year. I wonder if my brother can get me tickets...

Spamalot premieres in Chicago December 21, 2004, to January 16, 2005, before beginning Broadway previews on February 7.
