It Was A Silly Place On Sunday night, January 29th, I watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail at the Count Basie Theater.

Writers and actors call this “backstory” when they look at an individual character. They are the story before the story. Most of the time, prequels exist to answer questions. Why did he do that? […]
