Commentaires longs: Two musical numbers were dropped from Act One while the production was still in Chicago.[citation needed] During the scene set in the "Witch Village", the torch song "Burn Her!" was originally performed by Sir Bedevere, The Witch, Sir Robin, Lance and Villagers. At the French Castle, "The Cow Song", in a parody of a stereotypical film noir/cabaret style, was performed by The Cow and French Citizens. Before the two songs were cut in Chicago, the lead vocals in both songs were sung by Sara Ramirez. This gave her six songs in Act One, but no further appearances until scene five in Act Two, for "The Diva's Lament".

Commentaires : A stage version “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 Monty Python film, it opened on Broadway in March 2005 and received an astonishing 14 Tony Award nominations, winning three, including the Best Musical Award. It ran for 1,574 performances, and took over $175 million at the box office, closing January 11th 2009.
The London production opened in October 2006, with Tim Curry and Christopher Sieber repeating their Broadway roles. During the London run cast replacements included Simon Russell Beale, Peter Davison, Marin Mazzie and Sanjeev Bhaskar. The muchpraised Hannah Waddingham was replaced by Nina Soderquist , the winner of a Swedish TV “Search for a Star” competition. The London production closed on January 3rd 2009 a week earlier than the Broadway version.
Presse : PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Deliriously silly and loopily enjoyable evening." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Mike Nichols directs an exuberantly inventive production in which the jokes, both visual and verbal, just keep on coming, creating a conspiracy of pleasure that often feels like the best pantomime you’ve ever seen...It’s a wonderful night" NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "How sweet it also is to hear songs with silly lyrics that send up the style of instant moral uplift and dewyeyed yearning that characterise numbers from Rogers and Hammerstein to Andrew Lloyd Webber....Even describing the show as spoof, send-up, pantomime, musical comedy, satire and surreal farce does not altogether convey its weird, anarchic flavour. " MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "In short, the show has its moments; and Tim Hatley's sets and costumes carefully preserve the air of a low-tech medieval pantomime...There simply comes a point when I, for one, weary of old jokes and tongue-in-cheek send-ups of Arthurian ideals and musical cliches. Irony has its place but it's not quite enough to sustain a whole evening. With hand on heart, I'd much rather watch Lerner and Loewe's Camelot than Eric Idle's smart-arsed Spamalot." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Cheerfully mischievous...Silly? Very. Funny? You bet."
