The best show ever, if possible. It is funnier than the film itself! The musical version of the Monty Python’s and the Holy Grail, produced by Eric Idle, a former Monty Python’s actor. The scene was great, the decors were very Monty Python’s typical cartoonish designs seen mostly in their flying circus TV series. Tim Curry was absolutely brilliant as King Arthur, he is such a great actor and I did not know how well he could sing. Although he was made famous for the musical “Rocky Picture Show”, I only knew him for (often silly) roles in movies.
Sir Galahad was the pretty vain boy, who flicks her hair a lot, Sir Lancelot comes out of the closet (which solves the issue of Guinevere having an affair with him), the Lady of the Lake was a super cool and sexy drama Queen, Sir Francis a sissy scaredy-cat… and of course the French taunters were excellent and Alex bought me the Tee-shirt ‘Fetchez la Vache’ which I wear proudly! Anyone who reads this, please take a minute to book your tickets for the show, or make a trip to London (or Broadway) to watch the show, it is that worth it. I know I want to go back there every month, if finances allow until they stop playing! The songs were funny, the acting was funny and the story was silly. A terrific and hilarious show!
