Spamalot to Close at Wynn Las Vegas

“Spamalot” to close at Wynn Las Vegas

The cast and crew of the comic music “Spamalot” weren’t in a laughing mood before Wednesday night’s performance at Wynn Resort and Casino, but somehow the show went on. Before taking the stage, the Spamalotperformers, including star John O’Hurley, were given the sad and stunning news that their show would be closing on July 13. A Wynn spokesperson confirmed the details for The Sun on Thursday.

“Closing in Las Vegas will allow Monty Python’s ‘Spamalot’ to pursue opportunities elsewhere which had been precluded by the show’s agreement with Wynn Las Vegas,” according to a prepared statement from the casino/resort. “Wynn Las Vegas would like to extend its utmost appreciation to the cast and crew who bring laughs to our audiences each and every night, and a special thanks to our eminently lovable star John O’Hurley.”

TImpressionist Danny Gans, currently headlining at the Mirage, will take the musical’s place in the Grail Theater in early 2009; the theater will be refurbished and renamed the Encore Theater. The adjacent Encore Suites at Wynn Las Vegas is scheduled to open in December.

The Tony Award-winning “Spamalot,” which just began celebrating its anniversary at Wynn Las Vegas, will have played more than 500 performances when its contract concludes in July. “Spamalot” is the second Broadway-style show to close on the Strip this year, following the February shuttering of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” at Paris Las Vegas.

  1. Spamalot was a great show. When I was in Vegas, my friend invited me to the show and I thought it was hilarious. Most plays I have seen were pretty horrible but that one was great. When it starts touring I hope it’ll come to my theatre.
