An intimate, ensemble-driven production of the Lerner and Loewe classic Camelot, featuring a new adaptation by David Lee ("Frasier," "Cheers") is among the productions slated for the Westport Country Playhouse's 2016 season.

Westport artistic director Mark Lamos will direct Lee's adaptation of the musical that features book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. This adaptation was previously seen at New Jersey's Two River Theatre in fall 2014, where it received strong notices. This new staging will be presented Oct. 4-22, 2016.

Also planned are repertory stagings of Yasmina Reza's Art and John Logan's Red, presented May 3-29. Following will be Jonathan Tolin's Barbra Streisand-centric comedy Buyer & Cellar, running June 14-July 2.

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar's The Invisible Hand follows July 19-Aug. 6, with the Joe Orton comedy What the Butler Saw running Aug. 23-Sept. 10.
