A Wynn-win situation for ‘Spamalot’

'Monty' gets custom-built venue in Vegas

Steve Wynn suddenly has a thing about Tony-winning tuners.

After nabbing “Avenue Q,” which opens next month at Wynn Las Vegas, the hotelier has now secured “Monty Python’s Spamalot” for his resort. The 2005 Tony winner will open at Wynn Las Vegas in 2007.

Unlike the adult puppet show, however, “Spam” will tour concurrently with its Vegas stint. Kicking off in Boston, the national tour goes out in March 2006.

In Vegas, “Spam” will begin perfs upon completion of its own custom-built venue, to be called “Spamalot Experience and Grail Theater.” Designers on the project are the musical’s creator, Eric Idle, and its set and costume designer, Tim Hatley. In the Broadway staging of “Spamalot,” Hatley’s set envisions Camelot as the Excalibur hotel, one of Wynn’s competitors in Las Vegas.

“Spamalot” preemed March 17 on Broadway at the Shubert Theater, where it continues to sell out in an open-ended run. In addition to the Tony for musical, it took the awards for director of a musical, Mike Nichols, and featured actress in a musical, Sara Ramirez.
