The article presents an interview with producer Bill Harber, regarding his production of the live musical version of Monty Python & the Holy Grail. Harber said the biggest challenge facing the marketing plan was that they had to honor the Python irreverence without going so far that they would not attract the other avid theatergoers. Harber said he learned not to get too complicated, and to simplify the message from the show.
