It's Monty Python's Flying Circus...sort of. The comedy troupe Lester McFwap will premiere an evening of their British brothers' world famous skits in Owl-Stretching Time, playing weekends Nov. 2-Dec. 8 at the Santa Monica Playhouse.
Owl-Stretching Time promises many never-before-seen and never before-performed Python sketches, as well as written contributions by "Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle and probably the other ones, but we really aren't sure."
Lester McFwap is Tom Konkle, David Beeler, Michael Lindsay and Michael Neill. The four gentlemen had some success in 2000 reviving the Peter Sellers and Peter Cook Beyond the Fringe.
Tickets are $17.50. Santa Monica Playhouse is located at 1211 Fourth Street. For reservations, call (323) 655-TKTS. Santa Monica Playhouse is on the web at http://www.santamonicaplayhouse.com.
