Brian May Playing God in Spamalot next week

Legendary Queen guitarist Brian May is also the producer of We Will Rock You at London's Dominion theatre.   Next week is joining the "Summer of Spamalot Charity Gods" lineup where different celebrities film the part of God to be shown at Monty Python's Spamalot at the Playhouse Theatre  for a week at a time.

May's pre-recorded role will run from September 9th to the 14th and will benefit the Save Me Campaign, a non-profit organization that takes a stance against the persecution and torture of wildlife for sport.

Recent celebrities who have played the role for charity include Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville, Michael Palin, Barbara Windsor, Larry Lamb, Bradley Walsh, Simon Callow and Christopher Biggins.  The role of God in Spamalot appears when King Arthur and the Knights of The Round Table are given their quest to find The Holy Grail.

May said: "The opportunity to play God has got to be something that you can’t possibly pass up. I really, really didn’t want to stop. Once you've played God, nothing else will match up to that experience and I can quite understand what’s happened to David Cameron! I love Monty Python, always have done. Spamalot is a wonderful show and it’s very up-to-the-minute, it doesn’t date at all, and I recommend everyone see it at least five times."
