As previously announced, Camelot will play Boston's Shubert Theatre due to the recent fire at the North Shore's home base in Beverly, MA. Heading the cast of the production, which runs Sept. 20-Oct. 9, will be Joseph Dellger as Arthur, Nili Bassman as Guenevere and Maxime Alvarez de Toledo as Lancelot. Gabriel Barre directs. Joseph Dellger made his Broadway debut in Ragtime and was also seen in the Chicago, Vancouver and Los Angeles productions of that Lynn Ahrens-Stephen Flaherty musical. Nili Bassman has performed in productions at the Kennedy Center and Goodspeed and made her Broadway bow in Never Gonna Dance. A native of Paris with Franco-Spanish origins, baritone Maxime Alvarez de Toledo appeared in the European tour of Hair and the national tour of Titanic.
Camelot — featuring music by Frederick Loewe and book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner — originally opened at Broadway’s Majestic Theatre in Dec. 1960, playing 873 performances before closing Jan. 5, 1963. The premiere company included Richard Burton, Julie Andrews, Robert Goulet, Robert Coote, John Cullum and Roddy McDowall. The classic Lerner and Loewe score boasts such tunes as "If Ever I Would Leave You," "I Loved You Once in Silence," "Follow Me," "I Wonder What the King Is Doing Tonight" and the title tune.
