Of all the many versions of the King Arthur legend, Camelot, the stage musical by Lerner and Loewe (My Fair Lady, Brigadoon, Gigi), remains one of the most popular. Pageantry, adventure and some of the most gorgeous melodies of the past century combine in this four-time Tony Award-winning show about the tumultuous love triangle between King Arthur, Queen Guenevere and Sir Lancelot. Featuring many of Broadway's most beloved songs, including "The Lusty Month of May," "How to Handle a Woman," "I Loved You Once in Silence," "If Ever I Would Leave You" and "What Do the Simple Folk Do?" Camelot continues to enchant audiences more than 50 years after it premiered. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
The 2012 Festival Line-Up includes:
Evelyn in Purgatory* by Topher Payne, director Betty Hart*
Five public school teachers are caught in the limbo of the disciplinary “Rubber Room,” waiting for their cases to be heard and their fates decided. Poignant and funny, it’s like The Breakfast Club for teachers, as they share secrets with each other and begin to look into their own hearts. Winner of the 2012 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award.
Bat-Hamlet* by Jordan Pulliam, director Peter Hardy*
What if Shakespeare had conceived the melancholy Dane as a costumed crime fighter? The worlds of comic books and the Bard of Avon come together in this hilarious mash-up, a tale of murder and revenge, poetry and BAM! SOCK! POW!
The Local, director Ellen McQueen
A collaborative theatre project about the City of Atlanta, by the writers of Atlanta, developed and directed by the award-winning director of Ice Glen and Sally and Glen at the Palace. A similar project is happening in Tampa, Florida, and Essential Theatre has plans to reach out to theatres around the country to eventually make this a nationwide phenomenon.
All shows are suggested for audiences ages 18 and older.
