Your quest for discounted tickets to Spamalot just got a little easier. The musical, which begins performances October 31 at the St. James Theatre, will offer cheaper tickets via an in-person rush and a digital lottery. Opening night for the revival is set for November 16.
Rush tickets can be purchased at the St. James box office, two per person for same-day performances. Tickets are $39 each and based on availability. Seats may be partial view.
A limited number of $44 lottery tickets will be available for every performance on LuckySeat.com.

For weekend performances, entries will be accepted until 10:30 AM the Friday before, with the winner selection following at 11AM and beyond as needed.
Based on the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the musical follows King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table on their quest for the Holy Grail, complete with coconut-shell horse hooves, a run-in with the Knights Who Say “Ni!,” and more. The musical features a book by Eric Idle and a score by Idle and John Du Prez. Josh Rhodes is directing and choreographing after staging the production’s premiere at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., earlier this year.
