The Life of Python

  1. Feb 15, 2007 #1
    Ok since I know there are a few fans of Monty Python here, I read today after the success of Sir Spamalot, the musical version of the Holy Grail they've decided to do a musical version of the life of Brian, any thoughts?:smile:

    Yeah - I remember that. It was great! :rofl:

    My father, a Methodist minister, really enjoyed the movie.

    I don't know if it would be as successful as a play as Spamalot - although I haven't seen Spamalot. Not my cup of tea, I'm afraid.

    I wish Idle well and much success. Too bad Graham Chapman isn't around. He was my favorite Python.

    You can tell a lot about a person by knowing his favorite Python. I've always liked Michael Palin the most.

    Regarding a new musical, "Life of Brian" seems as though it would have been a more likely musical than "Grail" in the first place. I'm glad to see Idle making good. Evidently he had a few tough years (a bit too Idle).

    It's probably Palin for me as well, with a very strong second for Cleese, Ripping Yarns puts Palin over the top though.

    As it happens, "Life of Brian" was not allowed onto Norwegian cinemas due to the charge of blasphemy.
    This occasioned Swedish advertisers to make the slogan:
    "So funny that the Norweeds forbade it!"

    Norwegian authorities reneged their decision a couple of years later.

    Blasphemy laws are the worst kind!

    Life of Brian was my favorite. Tis a pity that Chapman's passed on. I enjoyed his performances in the Life of Brian and the Holy Grail.
