The Lerner and Loewe classic, Camelot, will play at Ohio's Carousel Dinner Theatre, Mar. 10-May 9.
Lerner and Loewe made their first return to Broadway after the success of My Fair Lady -- to mixed reviews and constant comparison with the still running Lady. Based on the King Arthur legend, the musical tells the story of idealistic young King Arthur who commands his knights to fight for right instead of booty, and who conceives of the Round Table, at which all knights would be equal. Intended to complete this perfect scenario is his marriage to the noble and beautiful Guenevere, but things go astray when Guenevere falls in love with the mightiest and most glorious of his knights, Lancelot, and Arthur's evil, bastard son Mordred connives to use the disgrace to destroy Arthur's dream.
The score includes "If Ever I Would Leave You," "The Lusty Month of May," "C'est Moi," "What Do the Simple Folk Do?" and the title song.
Camelot plays at the Carousel Dinner Theatre in Akron, OH, Mar. 10 May 9. For tickets ($33-$39, including dinner) or more information call (800) 362-4100.
