‘Spamalot’ Jams A Lot; Magid Wins Tony

Two erstwhile concert promoters were in New York City June 5th picking up trophies – not for staging the most interesting tour package, but Tony Awards for their efforts in Broadway theatrical blockbusters.

Electric Factory Concerts‘ Larry Magid won a Tony for best special theatrical event as a producer of Billy Crystal‘s “700 Sundays.”

But the big winner of interest was “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” the sendup of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” which won three Tonys from its 14 nominations, including best musical.

One of the co-producers of “Spamalot” is Jam Theatrical, a division of Chicago’s Jam Productions, under the stewardship of co-CEO Arny Granat. Jam also co-produced David Mamet’s “Glengarry Glen Ross,” which took the hardware for best revival.

Way to break a leg, gentlemen.
