When Clay Aiken was starring in Spamalot at the Shubert Theatre on Broadway, it was fun to meet and follow the actors that shared the stage with Clay. Some of the cast mates were veteran Broadway performers and some were just getting a start on the Great White Way.
During the past week, I took a bit of time each day to check what some of the Spamalot Cast are doing at this time. BUT…to make it more interesting, lets see if you can figure out who fits each role.

How did you do?? Some of the roles will be easy to figure out, but I think there are some surprises. I tried to find information about Merle Dandridge, Jonathan Hadary, and Brad Oscar, but I was unsuccessful. If you know what they are currently doing, let us know.
I hope you have fun with this and let us know how you successful you were in figuring this out! Did you see Clay in Spamalot? Maybe this video will remind you of how good he was as Sir Robin.
