这是一篇有关舞台剧<<The History Boys>> 的文章

If I had to single out the season's most intelligent, exhilarating evening of theater, Alan Bennett's idea and humor rich play would win hands down. The story about a group of young Brits for whom Oxbridge (a portmanteau name for Oxford and Cambridge) is the Holy Grail for a  crème-de-la-crème career path doesn't pander to escape seeking audiences. Yes, it's highbrow, but it's also remarkably accessible. Yes, there's a scene completely in French, but even with my decidedly limited French, the script and the hilarious stage interpretation never left me feeling like an outsider trying to  get an inside joke. By the same token, though it wouldn't hurt to have some familiarity with the poets mentioned, it doesn't really matter since their verses are so artfully and enjoyably interspersed into the dialogue.

请问红色部分如何理解? 谢谢

倒霉的文章,我看不懂。我猜猜行吗?crème法语单词,

和cream一样

The yellowish fatty component of unhomogenized milk that tends to accumulate at the surface.

crème-de-la-crème career在这里等于the best of the best

故事关于一群有为之士,这样的故事用不着去拉广告,发传单,拉观众,他们自己会主动来看。《疯狂的石头》^_^

水平有限。
Coming as I did from a family with no income at all,and with no prospects whatever,college was the narrow door that led darkness into light.

这个故事讲述了一群年轻的英国人,对他们来说“牛剑”(牛津和剑桥的合称)是帮助他们以后找到自己最好的事业重要途径。情节并没有去取悦哪些寻求现实逃避的观众。

谢谢barcelona, househusband, putneyswope, and hIy2006

还有一些地方不明白:

1) Oxbridge  is the Holy Grail for a  crème-de-la-crème career path中,
"the Holy Grail for Sth" 做何解释?

2)The story doesn't pander to escape seeking audiences 中
故事并不低就那些寻求对现实的逃避的观众, 到底是啥意思, 是说这是个现实主义题材, 而非像金庸写的那种小说?

Holy Grail:向往的目标;梦寐以求的目标
