It was on December 21, 2004 that Monty Python’s Spamalot had its world premiere in Chicago at the then Shubert Theatre. Directed by Mike Nichols, Spamalot has been a huge broadway success being named as the Tony Award winning musical for 2005.

Spamalot made its triumphant return to Chicago this week for a limited run through June 4, 2006 at the Cadillac Theatre.. To welcome Spamalot back to Chicago, the bakers at Eli’s created a special cheesecake for the party at Petterino’s following the opening night performance.

Eli’s congratulates Broadway in Chicago in bringing so many great shows to town this year including Spamalot, the Color Purple, Wicked and the 25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee.
