Sir Michael was able to attend at the Ricardo Montalban theatre last evening,http://www.AnEveningWithout.com
Reviewing this show is extremely simple: forget everything you learned at Spamalot
,The Greedy Bastard Tour
, Eric Idle Exploits Monty Python
, and especially forget Not the Messiah
An Evening Without Monty Python is the show that deserves to be on tour worldwide
and continue the Monty Python quest for world domination. Sir Michael hasn't laughed
himself into such uncontrollable convulsions for a long, long, long time. Although no actual Pythons
were onstage, the entire cast -- Jeff B. Davis, Jane Leeves, Alan Tudyk, Rick Holmes, and Jim Piddock --
completely nailed it from start to finish, every sketch and most every line with brilliant comic timing.
Our only wish is for much more than an 80-minute revival and more of Jane Leeves, a fire-hot British crumpet!
Ahem. As a special treat to Sir Michael, Eddie Izzard also attended and milled around in the lobby.
Rather a quiet chap in private, merely enjoying the performance and having a drink with his friends.
I'll post the setlist in a day or two. Those of you anywhere near New York City are in for a real treat,
so get up off your arses and sell the show out.
