Good Knight, Spamalot and More

All the latest in From Screen to Stage news:

- The Broadway reign of Monty Python's Spamalot will come to an end January 18. The Tony Award winning musical version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail currently stars Bradley Dean, Merle Dandridge and Clay Aiken, who is scheduled in the show through January 4.

- The poorly received stage adaptation of To Be or Not To Be will close a little sooner then planned. Originally, the Manhattan Theatre Club comedy was to offer an extra week of shows beyond its subscription run, but will now play its final performance on November 16.

- The German production of Disney's Tarzan swung into Hamburg this past weekend. Starring as the Ape Man and his Jane are Anton Zetterholm and Elisabeth Hübert, who won their roles via the German reality TV show Ich Tarzan, du Jane!

- Rumor has it that Anne Hathaway and Sean Hayes may be heading to Broadway in a revival of Promises, Promises. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will produce the show, which is inspired by the Billy Wilder classic The Apartment.

- Wicked's Stephen Schwartz is turning Séance on a Wet Afternoon, the Mark McShane novel and Kim Stanley movie, into an opera (his first). Special workshop performances will be held in New York November 21 and 22.

- And finally: After weeks of speculation (and the untimely ousting of Cheyenne Jackson), Legally Brown has completed its Search for the Next Piragua Guy. And the results, as revealed in the series' grand finale, are a shocker!

UPDATE: Just when you thought that the Legally Brown saga was over -- wacky outtakes!
