The short list of Broadway hits on the Las Vegas Strip is about to get shorter.
After a 15-month run, "Monty Python's Spamalot" at the Wynn Las Vegas resort's Grail Theater will close in July, the casino announced Thursday.
Longtime Las Vegas staple Danny Gans, an impressionist and comedian, will replace the Tony-winning musical.
"Spamalot" opened in late March 2007 as casino mogul Steve Wynn's second attempt to infuse the city's Cirque du Soleil-dominated entertainment scene with a touch of musical theater.
Wynn said Thursday that "Spamalot" filled an average 80 per cent of the 1,500-seat theatre for seven shows a week. "It's pretty good. It's good enough to keep it going," he said.
