will be captivated by this tale of bravery, love, betrayal,
and human frailty, woven into the rich tapestry of a time
long past and set to an unforgettable musical score. Based
on T.H. White's "The Once and Future King," the
show takes place in Medieval England, where King Arthur, inspired
by his lovely Queen Guinevere, establishes a new kind of court.
The Knights of the Round Table, whose motto is "might
for right," are dedicated to chivalry and high-minded
ideals. But the plot thickens as the handsome Sir Lancelot
catches the queen's eye and others threaten to discredit the
court and king. With his honor at stake and enemies lurking,
King Arthur must make hard decisions as he attempts to keep
his ideals alive.
The original 1960 Broadway production starred Richard Burton
and Julie Andrews and was the winner of four Tony Awards.
It enjoyed several successful Broadway revivals; a film version
was released in 1967.
