The cast features Christian Slater as Sir Galahad, Merle Dandridge as The Lady of the Lake, Warwick Davis as Patsy, Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Sir Robin, Eric Idle as the Historian, Craig Robinson as King Arthur, Kevin Chamberlin as Sir Bedevere, Tom Deckman as Not Dead Fred and Rick Holmes as Sir Lancelot. 

Directed by BT McNicholl, the limited engagement has choreography by Scott Taylor. Todd Ellison conducts the famed orchestra.

Idle, who wrote the book and lyrics and is co-composer of Spamalot, said in an earlier statement, “To celebrate ten years since Monty Python’s Spamalot opened on Broadway and won the Tony for Best Musical of the Year I am proud to join a hand-picked cast of seriously funny people for three nights of fun at my favorite venue: The Bollywood Hole.”

Monty Python’s Spamalot, according to press notes, "tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and their quest for the Holy Grail. The show features lusty maidens, dancing divas, a killer rabbit and a legless knight."

Monty Python’s Spamalot has book and lyrics by Idle, and music by John Du Prez and Idle. "Lovingly ripped off from the motion picture 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail,'" by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, Spamalot had its Broadway debut in 2005, directed by Mike Nichols.
