In "one brief shining moment," Camelot makes its Kennedy Center debut as a concert event starring famed British musical star Laura Michelle Kelly (Mary Poppins) and Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell (Kiss Me Kate, Ragtime, Glee). One of the most beloved musicals of a generation -- and one that's fittingly associated with the presidency of John F. Kennedy -- it's the timeless story of King Arthur, Queen Guenevere, the trusted Sir Lancelot and all the knights of the Round Table as they struggle with chivalry, bravery and destiny. Lerner & Loewe's memorable score, featuring such cherished songs as "If Ever I Would Leave You" and "How to Handle a Woman," is sure to enchant under the baton of conductor James Moore and the National Symphony Orchestra.

I loved this show and I had a great seat. I was very glad that they were able to tell the story through the songs since this was not the complete show. Terrific job. Beautiful voices, talented musicians and a very appreciative audience.
When the Kennedy Center’s own music man, Marvin Hamlisch, promises to strike up the band, by golly he leads the best band in town. This Pops review of Meredith Willson’s work begins with a medley of the songwriter’s best-known tunes. After the intermission, a line-up of Broadway stars led by Rebecca Luker as Marian the Librarian, Patrick Cassidy as Harold Hill, and Shirley Jones as Mrs. Paroo sings the beloved songs of The Music Man including “Seventy-six Trombones,” “My White Knight,” and many more! The Pops will have audiences marching from “Rock Island” to “Gary, Indiana,” and there will be no skipping the land this time, just rapt enjoyment of all the best of this five-time Tony Award–winning Broadway classic.
