I know this may be blasphemous, but it has been many years since I last saw Monty Python and the Holy Grail so essentially, I went into this production fairly blind as to what I was about to see.

Gaten Matarazzo joins the cast as Jared Kleinman in this last leg before the show closes in September. Perhaps most recognized for his portrayal of Dustin Henderson on the mega-hit Netflix series Stranger Things, Gaten tackles a role perfectly suited for his strengths.
