This is a very weak performance of a highly overrated musical. Gabriel Byrne hardly sings at all and sounds like he has a bad cold. He also turns Arthur into a sniveling wimp...pathetic, in short. Marin Mazzie couldn't act her way out of the proverbial paper. Christopher Lloyd plays his usual wacko 'Taxi' character. Stacy Keach and Fran Drescher are very short-lived and basically wasted (Drescher is particularly horrid with her usual Queens dialect). Lancelot is a over-blown opera singer and not very good-looking. All in all a total waste of time. I guess I never liked this show much because it trashes Lewis' Once and Future King which was a fabulous book. Giving it a 5 out of 10 was being generous.
