Does anyone recall the MM done some dozen years ago in Central Park with
Kevin Kline?

Check out the BBC version.  I think it's tip top.

[...] a joke,right?[...]

No.

Well, it might have been humerous for the participants. After all Woody
Allen said thet sex was the best fun you can have without actually
having to laugh. I surmise that one of the flagrante folk was the Second
Gentleman. The sight of his heaving naked buttocks (although I am not
personally aquainted with his buttocks should it not have been he) into
the head of a lady sitting on a stool in front of him with her face in
his groin turned out to be one of the more restrained events of the
afternoon.

I could tell you tales that would harrow up thy soul and freeze thy
young blood about this production. But the world is as yet as unready
for them as it is for the story of the Giant Rat of Sumatra.

Go and see it but don't take your servant. It is most unsuitable for
servants.
