“Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Musical” Just didn’t Cut It

* Somewhat Recommended * I was actually looking forward to seeing “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Musical”. In fact, a friend had texted me to ask if I’d seen it, a week before I’d seen it, because it sounded intriguing. Unfortunately, it’s too long; it doesn’t have any original songs; it doesn’t have an original story. It’s not even a musical, it’s a play with songs dropped in wherever they seem to fit. I was bored, bored, bored! 1 ½ Spotlights
