Based on the cult 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the uproariously funny musical follows King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table on a jaunty quest to find the renowned relic.
Original Monty Python member Eric Idle wrote the music and lyrics, and had a prominent place a the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony singing “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” which features prominently in the musical. Other musical highlights include “The Song That Goes Like This,” “Knights of the Round Table,” and “The Diva’s Lament (What Happened to My Part?).”
The show first opened on Broadway, winning the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical. Its subsequent West End production opened in 2006 at the Palace Theatre and ran for just over two years, featuring among its cast Tim Curry, Simon Russell Beale, Hannah Waddingham, Peter Davison, Marin Mazzie, and Sanjeev Bhaskar.
Monty Python are considered comedy pioneers, with their TV series Monty Python’s Flying Circus running for five years starting in 1969 on the BBC and subsequently being exported throughout the world. Alongside Idle, original members included John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, and Terry Jones."
Please note that the talented Bonnie Langford is returning to the role of Lady of the Lake from Monday 6th May 2013!
