Clay Aiken returning to Broadway

'American Idol' vet to reprise 'Spamalot' role

Claymates, get ready to head back to Broadway: “American Idol” alum Clay Aiken returns to the Rialto production of “Monty Python’s Spamalot” this fall in a four-month stint.

Aiken will reprise the role of Sir Robin, which he played earlier this year in an engagement that ended May 4. David Hyde Pierce originated the part in the 2005 tuner, based on the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Aiken is one of several reality TV stars who have made their way to Broadway, along with Fantasia Barrino (“The Color Purple”) and Taylor Hicks (“Grease”).

His previous run in “Spamalot” had a noticeable effect on box office. Weekly sales for the tuner surged the week Aiken joined the cast and took a steep tumble the frame after he departed.

Aiken returns to “Spamalot” Sept. 19-Jan. 4.
