Do you remember what you were doing in February, 2008? I have to think hard to remember all that I was doing then, but for some reason, I don’t have any trouble remembering what Clay Aiken was doing that February.
Clay was starring on Broadway in Spamalot. I would imagine that Clay remembers too!
According to Playbill.com, Spamalot played a total of 35 previews and 1,574 regular performances. The show grossed over $175,000,000 and was seen by more than two million people. The musical recouped its entire investment in under six months.
One of the things I enjoyed about Spamalot was that almost all of the main stars played more than one role during the play. It was interesting to see the actors change personalities so quickly during the performance.
Clay played the role of Sir Robin, a Knight of the Roundtable. Ironically called “Sir Robin the Brave,” he couldn’t be more cowardly. He joined the Knights for the singing and dancing.
Clay had a few other roles to play:
1st Sentry – a smart man whose post was in a tower.
Brother Maynard – a long winded monk.
Swamp Castle Guard – a rather slow fellow who seemed to have trouble understanding what he was supposed to do!
The following pictures show the characters that Clay played in Spamalot.
