NEW YORK
Broadway will have it’s own Monty Python gang next year – David Hyde Pierce, Tim Curry and Hank Azararia.

The actors will star in “Spamalot” a musical adapted from the film classic (and LinnieXX’s favorite movie) “MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL”. It was announced yesterday (July 7th).

“Spamalot”, directed my Mike Nichols, is scheduled to open March 10, 2005 (*DURING THE BEACON RUN….*) at the Shubert Theater.

“Spamalot” has a book by Eric Idle,, music and lyrics are by Idle and John Du Prez.

Hyde Pierce, the emmy winner performer from “Fraier” will portray Sir Robin. Curry and will play King Arthur and Azaria will be Sir Lancelot in the show.


I'm so there......

Tim Curry is amazing , I've seen him in a few musicals here
in DC. I always enjoy his performances. This should be wonderfull.

I wish they had included Neil Innes with the music, hopefully
they'll use some of his music from the film.

Does anyone have the original theatrical version of Holy Grail? Over the years, various cuts and edits have taken place, and there was a scene in the original which is no longer there, and not even mentioned in the "re-revised" script. In fact, if you watch the the DVD release with a script, there is a bungled attempt dealing with the old men during the "nuns" at the castle.

Anyway, if you are too young, too short, or too shy, I was curious if anyone else remembered the specific deletion I mention above

Cheers

ps--Not sure, but this review may be making a reference to the scene I am talking about:
"Extras wise this is as chocked as you can get, especially considering the film's age, the only thing missing are some deleted scenes"

I think it's spelled "Ni!" LinNIe.

The show will be in previews in Chicago for a couple of weeks, so I'll try to see it in January. Sounds like a lot of fun, and seeing Tim Curry in person would be a real treat.

Tim Curry should be great in this, I saw him in "A Christmas Carol" at Madison Sq. Garden a few years ago, the man is very talented, not a bad singer either. His performance in Rocky Horror had to be one of the best.
Should be interesting to see how they do some of the scenes. The whole movie cracks me up, the Black Knight, the bridge of death and the French soldier who taunts Arthur.

Hey Carlos, I saw it in the theater and I have the DVD, but haven't watched in a while.
Is it, "after the spanking, the oral sex" ? (Did I really write that here? Bad Zoot!) I don't remember if it's on the DVD or not.

bad, bad zoot!!!


i get carlos's reference now....see Dingo's line highlighted in bold...


ZOOT:
Welcome, gentle Sir Knight. Welcome to the Castle Anthrax.
GALAHAD:
The Castle Anthrax?
ZOOT:
Yes. Oh, it's not a very good name, is it? Oh, but we are nice and we will attend to your every, every need!
GALAHAD:
You are the keepers of the Holy Grail?
ZOOT:
The what?
GALAHAD:
The Grail. It is here.
ZOOT:
Oh, but you are tired and you must rest awhile. Midget! Crapper!
MIDGET and CRAPPER:
Yes, O Zoot?
ZOOT:
Prepare a bed for our guest.
MIDGET and CRAPPER:
Oh, thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!...
ZOOT:
Away! Away, varletesses. The beds here are warm and soft and very, very big.
GALAHAD:
Well, look, I-- I, uh--
ZOOT:
What is your name, handsome knight?
GALAHAD:
'Sir Galahad... the Chaste'.
ZOOT:
Mine is 'Zoot'. Just 'Zoot'. Oh, but come.
GALAHAD:
Look, please! In God's name, show me the Grail!
ZOOT:
Oh, you have suffered much. You are delirious.
GALAHAD:
No, look. I have seen it! It is here in this--
ZOOT:
Sir Galahad! You would not be so ungallant as to refuse our hospitality.
GALAHAD:
Well, I-- I, uh--
ZOOT:
Oh, I am afraid our life must seem very dull and quiet compared to yours.We are but eight score young blondes and brunettes, all between sixteen and nineteen-and-a-half, cut off in this castle with no one to protect us.

Oooh. It is a lonely life: bathing, dressing, undressing, knitting exciting underwear. We are just not used to handsome knights. Nay. Nay. Come. Come. You may lie here. Oh, but you are wounded!
GALAHAD:
No, no. It's-- it's nothing.
ZOOT:
Oh, you must see the doctors immediately! No, no, please! Lie down.
[clap clap]
PIGLET:
Well, what seems to be the trouble?
GALAHAD:
They're doctors?!
ZOOT:
Uh, they... have a basic medical training, yes.
GALAHAD:
B-- but--
ZOOT:
Oh, come. Come. You must try to rest. Doctor Piglet! Doctor Winston! Practise your art.

WINSTON:
Try to relax.
GALAHAD:
Are you sure that's absolutely necessary?
PIGLET:
We must examine you.
GALAHAD:
There's nothing wrong with that!
PIGLET:
Please. We are doctors.
GALAHAD:
Look! This cannot be. I am sworn to chastity.
PIGLET:
Back to your bed! At once!
GALAHAD:
Torment me no longer. I have seen the Grail!
PIGLET:
There's no grail here.
GALAHAD:
I have seen it! I have seen it!
[clank]
I have seen--
GIRLS:
Hello.
GALAHAD:
Oh.
GIRLS:
Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello.
GALAHAD:
Zoot!
DINGO:
No, I am Zoot's identical twin sister, Dingo.
GALAHAD:
Oh, well, excuse me, I--
DINGO:
Where are you going?
GALAHAD:
I seek the Grail! I have seen it, here in this castle!
DINGO:
Oh, no. Oh, no! Bad, bad Zoot!
GALAHAD:
Well, what is it?
DINGO:
Oh, wicked, bad, naughty Zoot! She has been setting alight to our beacon, which, I have just remembered, is grail-shaped. It's not the first time we've had this problem.
GALAHAD:
It's not the real Grail?
DINGO:
Oh, wicked, bad, naughty, evil Zoot! She is a bad person and must pay the penalty! (faces camera) Do you think this scene should have been cut? We were so worried when the boys were writing it, but now, we're glad.

RIGHT HEAD:
It's better than some of the previous scenes, I think.
LEFT HEAD:
At least ours was better visually.

DENNIS:
Well, at least ours was committed. It wasn't just a string of pussy jokes.

OLD MAN:
Get on with it.

TIM THE ENCHANTER:
Yes, get on with it!

ARMY OF KNIGHTS:
Yes, get on with it!


DINGO:
Oh, I am enjoying this scene.

GOD:
Get on with it!

DINGO:
[sigh]
[clunk]
Oh, wicked, wicked Zoot. Oh, she is a naughty person and she must pay the penalty, and here in Castle Anthrax, we have but one punishment for setting alight the grail-shaped beacon: you must tie her down on a bed and spank her.
GIRLS:
A spanking! A spanking!
DINGO:
You must spank her well, and after you have spanked her, you may deal with her as you like, and then, spank me.
AMAZING:
And spank me.
STUNNER:
And me.
LOVELY:
And me.
DINGO:
Yes. Yes, you must give us all a good spanking!
GIRLS:
A spanking! A spanking! There is going to be a spanking tonight!
DINGO:
And after the spanking, the oral sex.
GIRLS:
The oral sex! The oral sex!
GALAHAD:
Well, I could stay a bit longer.
LAUNCELOT:
Sir Galahad!
GALAHAD:
Oh, hello.
LAUNCELOT:
Quick!
GALAHAD:
What?
LAUNCELOT:
Quick!
GALAHAD:
Why?
LAUNCELOT:
You are in great peril!
DINGO:
No, he isn't.
LAUNCELOT:
Silence, foul temptress!
GALAHAD:
You know, she's got a point.
LAUNCELOT:
Come on! We will cover your escape!
GALAHAD:
Look, I'm fine!
LAUNCELOT:
Come on!
GIRLS:
Sir Galahad!
GALAHAD:
No. Look, I can tackle this lot single-handed!
DINGO:
Yes! Let him tackle us single-handed!
GIRLS:
Yes! Let him tackle us single-handed!
LAUNCELOT:
No, Sir Galahad. Come on!
GALAHAD:
No! Really! Honestly, I can cope. I can handle this lot easily.
DINGO:
Oh, yes. Let him handle us easily.
GIRLS:
Yes. Let him handle us easily.
LAUNCELOT:
No. Quick! Quick!
GALAHAD:
Please! I can defeat them! There's only a hundred-and-fifty of them!
DINGO:
Yes! Yes, he will beat us easily! We haven't a chance.
GIRLS:
We haven't a chance. He will beat us easily...
[boom]
DINGO:
Oh, **** .

LAUNCELOT:
We were in the nick of time. You were in great peril.
GALAHAD:
I don't think I was.
LAUNCELOT:
Yes, you were. You were in terrible peril.
GALAHAD:
Look, let me go back in there and face the peril.
LAUNCELOT:
No, it's too perilous.
GALAHAD:
Look, it's my duty as a knight to sample as much peril as I can.
LAUNCELOT:
No, we've got to find the Holy Grail. Come on!
GALAHAD:
Oh, let me have just a little bit of peril?
LAUNCELOT:
No. It's unhealthy.
GALAHAD:
I bet you're gay.
LAUNCELOT:
No, I'm not.

Actually, LinnieXX, the missing edit may make some blush, but I am shameless

The scene involved the quest early in the movie and was mostly animation

The dialogue went something like:
"They ate their way across the land and a sigh went across the land"
The animation had women's legs sticking out of the tent, and the implication was that the diet worked

Cheers

Plus, in some scripts the dirty old men still say the word "phuch" but is edited out in some versions of the film
