CAMELOT, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe is based on the King Arthur legend adapted from the T.H.White novel The Once and Future King. This all-new production is directed by Michael McFadden and features Scenic Design by Kevin Depinet, Lighting Design by Mike Baldassari, Costume Design by Paul Tazewell and Sound Design by Craig Cassidy.
Intimate and fresh, this captivating story of passion, pageantry and betrayal is presented in a bold and sexy new staging as never before seen on-stage. The celebrated score includes the classics “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “The Simple Joys of Maidenhood,” and the title song, “Camelot.”
