Bonnie Langford Will Return to Spamalot at West End's Playhouse; Daniel Boys Also Joins Cast
10 Feb 2014
Bonnie Langford will return to the cast of Monty Python's Spamalot at the West End's Playhouse to reprise her performance as The Lady of the Lake beginning Feb. 24. She will be newly joined by Daniel Boys as Sir Lancelot. Booking has also been extended through April 12.
Langford has been appearing on the current series of TV's "Dancing on Ice." She previously played The Lady of the Lake in the U.K. tour of the show, followed by runs when the show transferred to the West End's Harold Pinter and Playhouse theatres.
As a child performer, she starred on TV in "Opportunity Knocks" and "Just William," before appearing onstage with Angela Lansbury in Gypsy in 1974. As an adult, her credits include the original cast of Cats, and West End runs of Chicago, Guys and Dolls and 9 to 5 on tour.
The role of King Arthur is currently being played by Joe Pasquale, whom Langford contacted on Twitter to invite him to see the show, and then suggested his casting to the producers.
Daniel Boys, a finalist in BBC1's "Any Dream will Do" to find a performer to star in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, has appeared in tours of Rent and War Of The Worlds and in the West End in Avenue Q.
Pasquale and Langford appear through March 22. To book tickets, which are on sale through April 12, contact the box office on 0844 871 7627 or visit www.spamalotwestend.co.uk.
