Clay Aiken – A Small Reunion

The popular web-site, Broadway World, posted some new pictures of Clay Aiken this week.  It seems that Clay made a visit to the hilariously funny musical comedy, Something Rotten.

The Something Rotten website says:

SOMETHING ROTTEN! is “Broadway’s new, big fat hit!” (New York Post). The Associated Press calls it “fresh, hysterical and irreverent,” and Time Out New York cheers, “SOMETHING ROTTEN! is the funniest musical in at least 400 years!”

Clay saw the show a few months ago, but it’s not surprising that he wanted to visit again.  And, knowing so many of the cast members must make it even more fun.

It’s a Spamalot! reunion for former co-stars Beth Johnson Nicely, Clay Aiken, Jenny Hill, David Hibbard and Aaron Kaburick.

Beth Johnson Nicely: Since Spamalot, she has performed in three Broadway shows:

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas – Bullets Over Broadway – Something Rotten!

Jenny Hill: Since Spamalot, Jenny has performed in 2 seasons of Elf, and is now in Something Rotten.

David Hubbard: After an exciting time in Spamalot, David played in Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elf, and now is in Something Rotten. (Did you ever see David as Rum Tum Tigger in Cats?  He always stopped the show!!!

Aaron Kaburick: According to what I could find, Aaron did not perform with Clay in Spamalot.  However, he was in the the Broadway productions of Billy Elliot, Sister Act, Motown The Musical, and now, Something Rotten.

Something Rotten! director Casey Nicholaw reunites with his Spamalot star Clay Aiken and pose with Something Rotten!’s David Hibbard and Brad Oscar.

Casey Nicholaw: Casey choreographed Spamalot.  Since Spamalot, Casey has directed and choreographed 8 different hits on Broadway,  His next show is Tuck Everlasting that opens on April 26, 2016.

Brad Oscar:  Besides Spamalot, Brad has been in The Addams Family, Nice Work If You Can Get It, Big Fish, and now, Something Rotten.

Newest Something Rotten! cast member Edward Hibbert welcomes Clay Aiken backstage at the St. James Theatre.

Edward Hibbert:  I could not find any reference about Clay and Edward performing together, but you probably recognize this hard-working actor.  He has been in at least 10 Broadway shows and many movies and TV shows.  I remember him from Frasier!

Working together on a Broadway show must be exciting and having friends in the cast with you must make it more relaxing. I would imagine many of those friendships last a long time.  It’s fun to learn about some of Clay’s professional colleagues.

It seems that Clay enjoys the theatre.  I hope that someday he finds a part that he just can’t say no to.

Do you enjoy going to the theatre?

 Do you have a favorite show (besides Spamalot)?
