STAGE TUBE: Comedian John Cleese Says 'Political Correctness Can Lead to an Orwellian Nightmare'STAGE TUBE: Comedian John Cleese Says 'Political Correctness Can Lead to an Orwellian Nightmare'
by Stage Tube - Feb 3, 2016

In a video published on Big Think, Comedian John Cleese said, 'I'm offended every day. For example, the British newspapers every day offend me with their laziness, their nastiness, and their inaccuracy, but I'm not going to expect someone to stop that happening; I just simply speak out about it.'  He goes on to say, 'And the whole point about humor, the whole point about comedy, and believe you me I thought about this, is that all comedy is critical. Even if you make a very inclusive joke like how would you make God laugh? Answer: Tell him your plans. Now that's about the human condition; it's not excluding anyone.' (more...)

MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT kommt ans Tiroler Landestheater InnsbruckMONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT kommt ans Tiroler Landestheater Innsbruck
by Iris Moebius - Sep 8, 2015

Das Musical erzahlt in außerst ungewohnlicher Form die legendare Geschichte von Konig Artus und den Rittern der Tafelrunde. Es beruht auf der mittlerweile klassischen Filmkomodie Monty Python and the Holy Grail (deutscher Titel: Die Ritter der Kokosnuss), handelt von Rittern und ihren verqueren Heldentaten und „bietet eine Menge schoner Girls, Kuhe, Killerkaninchen und Franzosen", so Eric Idle. Das Grundungsmitglied des unvergleichlichen Monty Python-Teams hat die Filmhandlung fur das Musical verandert, bleibt aber dem schragen Monty-Python-Humor treu. Auch die Filmmusik wurde von ihm und John Du Prez fur das Musical umgearbeitet: teils neu komponiert, teils musikalisch aufgefrischt. Und das Wagnis, den eigenwilligen englischen Humor in die amerikanischste aller Kunstgattungen zu uberfuhren, wurde belohnt. In New York premierte MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT im Marz 2005, gewann drei Tony Awards, unter anderem den Tony Award fur das beste Musical und lief erfolgreich bis 2009. Auch in Australien und London wurde und wird SPAMALOT mit viel Erfolg gespielt. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Slater, Ferguson, Robinson, and Co. Bring Hilarity to SPAMALOT at the Hollywood BowlBWW Reviews: Slater, Ferguson, Robinson, and Co. Bring Hilarity to SPAMALOT at the Hollywood Bowl
by Michael L. Quintos - Aug 1, 2015

Definitely one of this current millennium's funniest stage shows, the world-famous Hollywood Bowl certainly chose wisely in its decision to stage the hit musical comedy Monty Python's SPAMALOT as this year's all-star annual summer stage musical spectacular, which was welcomed with plenty of sustained, hearty laughter and a well-deserved standing ovation during its opening night performance on Friday evening, July 31st. The nearly 18,000-seat venue's truncated, yet still enormously entertaining re-staging of the 2005 Tony Award winner for Best Musical continues with two additional weekend performances, August 1-2.
