At the age of 65, Broadway performer Michael McGrath passed away.

On Thursday, the celebrated actor went away abruptly at his Bloomfield, New Jersey, home.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that McGrath’s cause of death is still a mystery.

The musical Spamalot, which was based on the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, featured McGrath in the character of Patsy.

In 2014, he gushed to Boston Irish about how “amazing” it was to work with Tim Curry and Mike Nichols on the play.

However, McGrath acknowledged that when the idea for the play was originally floated, he had no idea how they would adapt the classic movie for the stage.

As soon as word of McGrath’s passing spread, tributes were paid.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, actor Eric Idle, a member of the British comedy troupe Monty Python, wrote: “Very grieved to learn that Michael McGrath, our first and most cherished Patsy in Spamalot, has gone away.

“Warm hugs to all the Spamalot family and very happy memories of a lovely man.”
