    This is the first production from the Kennedy Center’s Broadway Center Stage series, headed by Jeffrey Finn, to transfer to Broadway. 

    It will join a season of big musical revivals, including Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, starring Jonathan Groff, Daniel Radcliffe and Lindsay Mendez, The Wiz, starring Wayne Brady and Cabaret, which has not yet announced casting. 

    Spamalot takes over the St. James Theatre from the musical New York, New York, which closed on July 30, one week after making the announcement.
