NEW YORK, Aug 12, 2005 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Two of the stars of Broadway's "Spamalot" have reportedly incurred the wrath of director Mike Nichols for missing too many shows.

Production sources told the New York Post Tony winner Sara Ramirez, who plays the Lady of the Lake, averages three to four absences per week while Tim Curry, King Arthur, isn't far behind.

Both stars have been plagued with illnesses, a show spokesman told the Post.

On the honor roll is David Hyde Pierce, who has hardly missed a show since it opened, the Post said.

Sources said Nichols -- the most powerful director on Broadway -- had called a mandatory cast meeting this week presumably to "ream" the cast for absenteeism, but the meeting was indefinitely postponed.
