|Beating a dead horse here, without even seeing the production yet…but….am I to understand here that in Sorkin’s script, the miracle when Lance revives the knight whom he has killed in the joust (not Arthur, no, but one of the three Guenevere has set against him at the joust) has been eliminated or made insignificant? But that is THE moment which causes the « falling in love » event for Guenevere. She’s not (as in TH White) just falling for a hunk. She has been touched to the very soul to have seen such goodness in a man and to have, at the same time, been absolved for having caused the death of the knight Lance brings back from the dead. I hope it’s still there. There was music for it.
And setting up that Arthur and Jen have some no-sex-please arrangement??? Is that what Sorkin’s done? How commonplace!!! Yucch. I hope not. And does Sorkin give the courtly love of Lance and Jen one night of hasty consummation? Why? Loewe was, according to Ms Andrews’ memoir, adamant that the show would not fully work with Arthur an ordinary cuckold and Jen a hussy. I will be sad if this is so.
I agree with Loewe. I think his fine point is important.
Elevate these people!
And, for that same reason, Jen should have “I loved you once in silence” or st least share it.
