Where In the World is Clay Aiken? Well that question was answered Sunday night when Clay attended the final Broadway performance of Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Shubert Theatre.
From all accounts, the cast and crew put on a spectacular show, filled with the usual jokes and giggles, but also added a few closing night antics. The audience was afforded a very special experience and the sold-out crowd showed their appreciation with a long standing ovation.
A highlight of the evening was at the end when Eric Idle took the stage and in his witty way, mentioned that he would miss the ……..money!! He was joined on the stage by John DuPrez and Mike Nichols who joked about having a few suggestions for the cast.
All former cast members were invited up to share in the final singing of Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. Included in the group were David Hyde Pierce and Chris Sieber who were a part of the original cast.
Clay Aiken, who portrayed Sir Robin until Jan 4th, joined the others on the stage and seemed to enjoy seeing his friends and participating in the closing festivities. He hugged his fellow cast members, picked up confetti and blew the final confetti horn.
Clay looked dapper wearing grey flannel trousers, a blue shirt and sweater vest, topped off with a bow tie. It was reported that he was wearing his glasses and that his hair is lighter in color. He was accompanied to the performance by his friend Reed Kelly and his bodyguard Jerome. They all seemed to enjoy the performance, leading the applause for their friends on the stage.
It was reported that there was a huge party for the cast, former cast and crew after the performance.
Fans are looking forward to watching the careers of not only Clay Aiken, but Tom Deckman, Rick Holmes and David Hibbard. They are so talented that another show will surely be in their future
As for Clay and his next project, we can only hope we find out that information soon. Whatever it is, it is bound to be successful and will show off his wonderful talent.
