It's a Wrap: Clay Ends 4 Month Spamalot Stint

video



Clay bids farewell to Spamalot: May 4, 2008

Clay's 4 month run on Broadway's Spamalot is officially over. Just as it began, Clay was given a huge send-off tonight at the Shubert Theater. Reports from the board:
  • "On the phone with Ficus. The family's going up on stage!"
  • suz reported:

    knights of ni sang "my baby takes the morning train"

    full on flash when he sat down at the piano

    during the string brading part he went on and on and on, after a few minutes prince herbert sat down, and the king sat on the stage and patsy sat down and let him keep braiding and braiding.

    someoen else will have to report the curtain call, she couldnt remember many details for me haha, but the screaming was INSANE
  • spot and deborah760 were crying
    all the girls in the backline of the chorus were crowding around him at the end

    when the king came out for his bow, he didn't take his "stance"
    he immediately knelt down and held out his arm for Clay
  • OMG THE SCREAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Clay is up on the roof
  • Someone is up on the Marquee taking pictures. Shubert Alley is terribly full. When Clay was doing the ribbons. He braided the entire length of the ribbon. It went on forever. Herbert finally sat down. Then the father sat down !! Clay continued. Very funny. They were told that during one of the Camelot scenes, Clay kissed one of the girls. He did hip thrusts near the end tonite. He was very frisky.
  • Clay is up on the roof so everyone can see him!!!!!! Waving and blowing kisses, everyone's crying now!!

    HE HELD UP 6 FINGERS FOR MAY 6TH!
  • He held up a "zero" sign to Patsy at the very end.

  • I just got a call from Clayalwaysandforever and got to talk to Clayperfect and Clayishope. They are having a ball. Said it was so exciting. They said the screams were so loud. They were so surprised to see him on the roof. They said the crowd went wild. They said some other stuff but couldn't hear really loud. But you could just feel the excitement thru the phone. I so wish I could have been with them.
  • Shubert Alley is PACKED. Clay came out on the overhang over the gift shop... she missed it... never even saw him out there. She saw a picture and it was kinda dark, so no lights were on him or anything. No stage door... they're having a party or whatnot backstage.

    Working backwards... Curtain call... everyone jumped up. You couldn't even hear him sing it was deafening in there. During the singalong all the chorus girls gave him boquets of flowers, and another woman came out from the wings and gave him more. He made a zero to Patsy... he was reveling in the cheers. She felt sorry for the probably 10 people who were there just to see Spamalot cuz they didn't have a clue.

    The funniest thing tonight was the guard scene. Most things played normally... when he does YWSOB, he tried to shush the applause so he could do the piano part, he was like wait, wait, wait... got to the piano, turned around one more time to tell everyone to hush... then he DELIBERATELY did the biggest tunic flip of all time... at the end of it he kneels in front of the king and then got up and the applause is still going on, so he got down, got up, got down, got up... the applause continued... he kept milking it -- the applause wouldn't stop...finally the applause starts to stop and the king is waiting and waiting and the King took JUST the right pause before "Gosh"... it was perfect.

    The guard scene played pretty much straight... then he starts to braid the ribbons like before and he's slowly braiding and the laughter and cheering won't stop and he's starting to get to the bottom and she hears a huge laugh, look up and Tom's finally just sat down, and then they all three sat down and just waited and waited for Clay to braid and sniff and whatever...and it finally ended, but she doesn't remember how... Ficus thinks maybe Clay looked at them all like what are you doing...
  • guard scene:

    playing with ribbons, starts braiding
    audience laughing
    braids all the way down
    Tom Deckman finally sat down
    Bradley Dean looked up and saw Tom and he sat down
    Then Patsy sat down
    All while Clay braided!
  • "Someone just said that one of the girls wiped a tear from his face at the end! sniff.gif"
  • grabbing him around the neck and kissing him.

    What was his expression at curtain call? He was reveling in all the attention and the joy (*sniff*)... the whole cast was... they mostly went with it even thought sometimes the applause took over the show... For example, Tom comes out to do his narration and the cheers made them have to stop the graphics cues.

    Rick did a few different things tonight... he did his humping realllly slow, when they are all four doing their own rude gestures, Rick "did" Tom -- lifted up his tunic and acted like he was working Tom (heh).

    Knights who say NI sang My baby takes the morning train... laughter, he just kept making up silly verses, and the minstrels are losing it and the king is about to lose it... Clay was about to lose it... Rick still going and the King starts to open his mouth, and Rick starts again... they just milked it all.

    Tuesday is gonna be like hittin' the wall... (aww).
  • toni2marie is talking now...

    just great, frisky, shaking hips, very loose - played it for all it's worth

    tonight was all about him
  • More spot and kimiye...

    At the end of Act I, they're running from the cancan dancers, usually the one who tries to drag him behind the curtain was spanking him, and spanking him hard. The girls were all over him tonight. Any girl who normally gets within two feet of him was grabbing him around the neck and kissing him.

  • Got a call from Claygirl9131 and talked briefly to Baglady!
    Claygirl said Clay did NOT get teary, that he was happy happy happy, jumping around and enjoying it!

    Said that AFTER the show, not during Curtain Call, Angie, Quiana, Nick and Mary went up on stage. That was the 'family', not relative type family!
