The Lion in Winter

John Cleese & Eric Idle
Sat. Dec. 3 | "It's their last chance to see these two old farts," Eric Idle recently told The Stranger. "'I saw them before they died' is actually, I think, the slogan of the show." The Monty Python alums and comedy legends talk, sing and perform new sketches in their absurd semi-retrospective "Together Again at Last... For the Very First Time" (actually the title of the show). At 8 p.m. at the Saenger Theatre.
