Andrew Burnap, Phillipa Soo, & Jordan Donica to Lead Revival of Camelot

Lincoln Center Theater is prepping to bring Camelot back to Broadway this spring and has announced initial casting for the revival. Tony Award winner Andrew Burnap, Phillipa Soo, and Jordan Donica will star in the musical, which will feature 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.

Burnap, who won a Tony Award for his performance in The Inheritance, will take on the role of Arthur, Broadway favorite Soo will play Guenevere, and Donica, returning to Lincoln Center Theater after playing Freddy Eynsford-Hill in the 2018 revival of My Fair Lady, will be Lancelot Du Lac. Performances begin Thursday, March 9, 2023, before officially opening on Thursday, April 13, 2023, at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.

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, the striving for justice, and the tragic struggles 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,” “The Lusty Month of May” and the title song “Camelot.”

The Lincoln Center Theater production of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot will feature choreography by Byron Easley and will have sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Jennifer Moeller, lighting by Lap Chi Chu, sound by Marc Salzberg and Beth Lake, projections by 59 Productions, casting by The Telsey Office and fight direction by B.H. Barry. Music Director Kimberly Grigsby will conduct a 30-piece orchestra performing Camelot‘s original orchestrations by Robert Russell Bennett and Philip J. Lang and dance and choral arrangements by Trude Rittman. Charles Means is the Stage Manager.

Tickets go on sale Sunday, November 13. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
