WRAL and Linda Loveland go behind the scenes with Clay Aiken in Spamalot.
Clay walks through the wig and costume area, the music pit and his dressing room - talking about the wonderful cast and crew of Spamalot and joking about his costume . . .
Aiken goes through several costume changes during the play, but he keeps ripping one in particular.
“Literally, they’ve had to modify things to make it work for me, because they’ve never had someone dance quite as well as me,” he joked.
So, where is the rip?
“Right in the crotch, as a matter of fact,” he said.
his wigs . . .
Wigs are another part of his costume. He wears three, and they’re all made out of real hair.
“Look! Even my wig is going gray from all the stress. Look! Do you see that?” he laughed.
