It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Gotta Bust out Somehow

Emma: Arthur, it’s time to be quiet now.

Arthur: All this being quiet is making me want to sing.

  3. After having just seen Spamalot, all I can think of is:

    HERBERT: I’d rather… just…
    FATHER: Stop that, stop that! You’re not going to do a song while I’m here.

  4. LOL. I know Arthur probably drives you nuts, but the kid is hilarious to read about.

  7. Peter: LOL

    Kittenpie: It’s usually “Jingle Bells”, but yours are definitely more apropos.

    Aaron: LOL Sounds like a show I need to see. Also sounds like live theatre, somehow, and British to boot. Was it any of those?

    Kristen: Oh, it’s the crazy-making ones who make the best copy. Never doubt it!

    Q: Laughed out loud when I read this one! Could be, could be…

    Kimmyk: LMAO Arthur in tap shoes would bring down the house. Literally. The boy’s a tad heavy on the feet. But it would be entertaining!

  8. Mary — Spamalot is a musical based largely on Monty Python’s The Holy Grail. The link I provided was to the lines of The Holy Grail, and the scene from which I quoted was reproduced almost verbatim in Spamalot. So both yes and no to the question of live theatre, and most certainly British (though Spamalot was mostly performed by Americans).
