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. Coinciding with the 50-year anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy, New Repertory Theatre's production spotlights how human passion and need can threaten youthful idealism and a desire to create a better social order.

Four of us attended. We thought the singing was very good. The stage looked very cluttered, but the revue left you no choice but to create all those spaces.
We felt quite cheated by a show that was only 1 hour and 15 minutes. That seemed like Act I with a missing Act II. I have seen every Sondheim musical except this one, and it's clear that a revue is not his forte - we were bored. If he'd thought of it more as an opera, he could have maintained the singing-no dialogue with a story and a plot. Or he could had added some dialogue to push the story forward about people trying to connect.
Sondheim's "Company" is also about a guy trying to connect, but all his relationships with couples and single women push the story forward and show Bobby's growth as a person, building to the climax when he sings "Being Alive". Ironically, "Company", the first musical for which Sondheim wrote music and lyrics, is my favorite musical of all time, and I'll see a production of it anywhere I can. The problem with "Marry Me a Little" really lies with Sondheim - he strung some leftover songs together and tried to pass it off as a musical.

The actors did a good job in the various scenes, but, in my opinion, the music, songs that had been dropped from other musicals, was not as memorable as that of the more well known shows. I did, however, enjoy the two piano accompaniment
