The quest brings them to strange places and into the company of strange characters, challenged to keep their heads on straight or die terribly weird deaths.Book & Lyrics by Eric Idle. Music by John Du Prez. Directed by Penny Cullers. 2005 Tony Award winner for Best Musical comedy. Not recommended for young children. Theatre season sponsor: CivicPlus. Platinum Sponsors: Debbie Nuss & Brad Fenwick. In memory of Charlotte Edelman. Gold Sponsor: Manhattan Broadcasting Company.
