Quotes & Highlights

“Plenty of laughs…rousing score. A great date-night musical. Within the heart of each of the remarkable group of knights and louts who make up the cast beats the soul of a rollicking, witty clown.” —The Hollywood Reporter
“Outlandish production numbers…Sumptuous sets and costumes.” —Variety
“Snazzy choreography…Monty Python has a way of coaxing you into its giddy time machine for a journey that, no matter how far-flung, usually ends up in the troupe’s delightfully familiar backyard of anachronistic zaniness.” —Los Angeles Times
