A Valentine for Clay from Broadway

Clay Aiken Gets Spamalot Valentine From Crane

Happy Broadway Valentine’s Day! The author of such classic tales as Maggie and Red Badge of Courage also happens to be one of the biggest fans of Spamalot. While both Clay Aiken and the production of Spamalot have left Broadway, the quest for the Grail continues on other stages around the globe.

It is only fitting then that we take a moment to offer you Stephen Crane’s Broadway Valentine to Spamalot star Clay Aiken.

Now, as promised, Stephen Crane’s Broadway Valentine to Clay Aiken and Spamalot:

Fast rode the knight

With spurs, hot and reeking,

Ever waving an eager sword,

“To save my lady!”

Fast rode the knight,

And leaped from saddle to war.

Men of steel flickered and gleamed

Like riot of silver lights,

And the gold of the knight’s good banner

Still waved on a castle wall.

I think Broadway wants him back.
