Aaron Sorkin & Bartlett Sher to Bring Reimagined Camelot to Broadway

Next season, Lincoln Center Theater (under the direction of André Bishop) will bring the world of Lerner & Loewe’s Camelot to vibrant life once again when it produces a new version of the classic tale, reimagined for the 21st century.

Featuring a book by Academy and Emmy Award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin, based on the original book by Alan Jay Lerner, and direction by Bartlett Sher, Lerner & Loewe’s Camelot is scheduled to begin performances on Thursday, November 3, and open on Thursday, December 8 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.

Casting and design team for Lincoln Center Theater’s new production of Lerner & Loewe’s Camelot will be announced at a later date.

Based on “The Once and Future King” by T.H. White, Camelot, Lerner, and Loewe’s 1960 follow up to My Fair Lady, is a story about the quest for democracy, striving for justice, and the tragic struggle between passion and aspiration, between lovers and kingdoms. This epic and timely tale features the iconic characters King Arthur, Queen Guenevere, and Sir Lancelot as well as the beloved original score with lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe which includes “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “What Do the Simple Folk Do?” and the title song “Camelot.”

This season Lincoln Center Theater is currently producing Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic The Skin of Our Teeth, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz beginning previews Friday, April 1 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, the LCT3 production of Bryna Turner’s critically acclaimed new play At The Wedding, directed by Jenna Worsham, at the Claire Tow Theater, as well as additional productions to be announced at the Mitzi E. Newhouse and Claire Tow Theaters.
