“Spamalot” at the Wynn shows an impressive gain to the number six position with opening night a little less than a month away. “We’re thrilled that Monty Python’s SPAMALOT is ranking so high one month before we begin Previews!” said Jennifer Dunne, Vice President of Entertainment Marketing and Sales for Wynn Las Vegas. “It shows the huge interest and following for both Monty Python and the show in a market where entertainment offerings are abundant and advance sales are on the decline.”
