Re: Monty Python

I love 'The Merchant of Venice' as performed by The Bad Ischl Dairy Herd

Theater Critic: It is always a joy to see a new interpretation of one of Shakespeare's works. But seldom do we find something so refreshingly original as this production by the Cows of Bad Ischl. The Merchant of Venice has always been a difficult play for animals. I remember three years ago some chickens from Kaiserskauten trying it and failing miserably. But these cows have avoid-ed the pitfalls that the chickens fell into. They haven't tried to dress up. They haven't tried to make it into an allegory about eggs. And they didn't run away all the time. I loved it. I can't wait to see these fine dairy cows get to grips with Wagner at Bayreuth next week.
