Monty Python’s John Cleese is bringing a stage model of their 1979 film “Monty Python’s Lifetime of Brian” to a London stage in 2024, in keeping with The Day by day Mail (hyperlink right here).

The article says that troupe-mate Eric Idle was partnering with Cleese, and that whereas Brian doesn’t get crucified within the stage model, he’ll sing the enduring tune from that scene, “At all times Look on the Vibrant Aspect of Life.”

However Eric Idle took to Twitter in the present day to refute each these claims.

One other scene that’s reduce is a dialog during which a trans character is mocked for desirous to have infants, to Cleese’s dismay.

Cleese mentioned,

“So right here you’ve gotten one thing there’s by no means been a grievance about in 40 years, that I’ve heard of, and now rapidly we won’t do it as a result of it will offend individuals. What’s one presupposed to make of that? However I believe there have been plenty of issues that had been truly, in some unusual approach, predictive of what was truly going to occur later.”

Of particular curiosity is that the stage model will embody a scene written by Michael Palin that by no means made it into the film.
