Camelot

Opening Date : September 26, 2009
Theater : White Plains Performing Arts Center, White Plains, NY

 

Winner of four 1961 Tony Awards and the Outer Critics’ Circle Award.

From the artistic team that gave us last season’s thrilling production of RAGTIME, an exciting new look at Lerner and Loewe’s timeless masterpiece about King Arthur’s enchanted kingdom, CAMELOT, where honor and chivalry reign. When Queen Guenevere falls in love with Sir Lancelot, this idyllic land is placed in jeopardy. The splendid, memorable score includes the romantic and haunting “If Ever I Would Leave You,” the captivating “How to Handle a Woman” and the majestic title song. The show originally opened in 1960, won 4 Tony Awards and caught the imagination of the country and its youthful president, John F. Kennedy. This gorgeous musical play became forever entwined with the American values of social equality and justice. CAMELOT seems more relevant than ever this election year as we weary of war, yearn for a return to a more-perfect time and re-discover the grandeur of one of history’s greatest love stories.

The production starred Tony Award nominee Robert Cuccioli as King Arthur and also starred Juli Robbins as Guinevere and Gregg Goodbrod as Lancelot with Mark Aldrich,
Diana Rose Becker, Ronald L. Brown, Kerry Conte,
