On March 4th, Lincoln Center Theater will be presenting a benefit concert of Lerner & Loewe’s Camelot directed by Bartlett Sher. The cast includes Lin-Manuel Miranda as King Arthur, Solea Pfeiffer as Guenevere, Jordan Donica as Sir Lancelot, Dakin Matthews as Merlyn, Ruthie Ann Miles as Nimue, Ethan Slater as Mordred, Julie White as Morgan Le Fey, and Jenn Colella, Jason Danieley, & Bonnie Milligan as three of The Knights of the Round Table.
I wonder if this could be Lincoln Center’s next musical revival after My Fair Lady. I remember producing artistic director André Bishop talked about exploring the Rodgers & Hammerstein catalogue with South Pacific and The King & I. Could they be exploring the Lerner & Loewe catalogue next?February 3, 2019 at 10:05 am #1202760191
