Knight Life - A Musical Comedy

Knight Life

Knight Life, written by Robert Sternin and Prudence Fraser with music by Jeff Barry, premiered at Music Theater of Santa Barbara, California in 2002.  It has since enjoyed performances at other venues in California and in Connecticut.  Knight Life made its official world premiere at the Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach, Florida, on November 18, 2005.  Knight Life, which was originally slated to be a TV series, is a musical comedy about a romance between a princess and a knight.  Taking place during the medieval era, and described in a preview as a cross "between Camelot and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," Knight Life employs many of the same comedic tools - blending the historic with the present day - used by Mel Brooks in such films as History of the World, Part I.  The storyline is classic - the romance between a royal and a commoner.  What makes Knight Life unique is its deft use of farce and satire combined with true comedic dialogue and a wonderful musical score.  (When he's asked to summarize the plot, Jeff Barry responds: "It's about a dysfunctional kingdom in the middle ages." )
Sternin and Fraser's long list of credits include writing and production for the TV series The Nanny, one of the funniest shows ever to grace the airwaves.  A collaboration between this super writing team and music superstar Jeff Barry cannot fail to result in a fun, funny, and enjoyable hit show!
