What do the simple folk do? They get tickets to the five-time Tony-nominated revival of Camelot, the classic Lerner and Loewe musical newly revised by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin. Get Camelot tickets on TodayTix and enter the kingdom.
See Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's beloved follow-up to My Fair Lady, featuring classic songs like “The Lusty Month of May” and “If Ever I Would Leave You.” Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network) adapts the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, in which Arthur’s marriage and era of noble leadership come under threat. Can Arthur uphold his duty and his love while ensuring Camelot survives?
Under the direction of Bartlett Sher, the Tony winner who led Lincoln Center Theater’s critically acclaimed My Fair Lady revival in 2018, the golden kingdom of Camelot returns for a new era.
Don’t wait until the lusty month of May — get tickets to Camelot in New York now.
Camelot, which premiered on Broadway in 1960, initially received mixed reviews, but it won four Tony Awards, including Best Leading Actor in a Musical for Richard Burton. (Julie Andrews, who played Guenevere, was also nominated for Best Actress.) Since its premiere, the show has been repeatedly revised and is now an equally beloved part of Lerner and Loewe's canon.
The Camelot musical has received four previous Broadway revivals; the most recent was a one-night performance in 2011. Burton returned to his role as Arthur for the first revival in 1980, this time opposite Christine Ebersole as Guenevere.
The latest revision for the 2023 revival is a new book by Aaron Sorkin. Most recently, Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird into a critically acclaimed Broadway play, and he’s also known for writing TV shows and films including The Social Network, which earned him an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. He received three additional Academy Award nominations for his screenplays for Molly’s Game, Moneyball, and The Trial of the Chicago 7.
