Monty Python Reunion Show: Details

The Monty Python on-stage reunion show in London next month will be bigger, “a little bit ruder” and feature various song-and-dance scenes, Carol Cleveland, known as the “Female Python” or “Seventh Python,” has told U.K. magazine Radio Times. Rehearsals have started, with the show at the British capital’s O2 Arena opening on July 1 for a 10-date run. But the biggest change in this show from when we’ve done it before is the 20 ensemble singer dancers,” Cleveland said. “We have big musical numbers, so there’s lots of dancing and singing as well…It’s part of the sketch. They don’t just come out and do a number, so yes, they’re used in the sketches as well.” She also mentioned several famous sketches that will be part of the show. As expected, the Pythons will perform the “Parrot Sketch.” The show will also include the “Argument Sketch,” the popular “Lumberjack Song” and song number “Christmas in Heaven” from the film “Monty Python and the Meaning of Life.”
