Jodie Prenger Returns to Monty Python's Spamalot for Final Fortnight of West End Run
02 Apr 2014
Jodie Prenger has returned to Monty Python's Spamalot for the final fortnight of its West End run at the Playhouse Theatre, through April 12.
She previously played the role of the Lady of the Lake in the 2010 U.K. tour of the show (which, according to press materials, "travelled the length and breadth of the land and through large and very expensive forests"). She is best known for winning the BBC1 TV series "I’d Do Anything" in 2008, as a result of which, she starred as Nancy in Oliver! at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. She has also appeared in the West End in One Man, Two Guvnors at Theatre Royal Haymarket.
In a press statement, she said, "It was a joy to play The Lady of the Lake on tour. Having loved performing on the West End stage in Oliver! and One Man, Two Guvnors, I’m very much looking forward to treading the boards again, but this time in the glittery blue dress alongside the brilliant Spamalot cast at the Playhouse Theatre."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
