aside Shakespeare Theatre Company reveals cast for ‘Camelot’

The cast of Lerner and Loewe’s multiple Tony Award-winning musical Camelot has been revealed by Shakespeare Theatre Company  (STC).

STC affiliated artists Ted van Griethuysen (Merlyn) and Floyd King (King Pellinore) will join an impressive cast of actors including Ken Clark (King Arthur), Nick Fitzer (Lancelot du Lac) and Grammy Award-nominee Alexandra Silber (Guenevere), who will make their STC debuts.

With the much-beloved music of Lerner and Loewe (My Fair Lady), Camelot depicts the powerful love triangle between King Arthur, his Queen, Guenevere, and the knight Lancelot. It also tells a strikingly familiar tale of a leader’s integrity, courage and empathy—a chronicle of the struggle for civilization and goodness in a world accustomed to violence and hate, and a hymn to an era of leadership that upheld idealism and championed the potential of humankind.

Camelot to run at Shakespeare Theatre Company

Directed by STC Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul (Kiss Me, Kate; Man of La Mancha), the classic musical will play at Sidney Harman Hall (610 F St NW) from May 22 through July 1, concluding STC’s 2017-2018 mainstage season.

Helen Hayes Award-winning Choreographer Michele Lynch reunites with Paul after their celebrated production of Kiss Me, Kate. Camelot’s set will be created by Scenic Designer Walt Spangler, whose work for STC includes Strange Interlude, Old Times, and many others. Costume Designer Ana Kuzmanic returns to STC after designing King Lear starring Stacey Keach. Lighting Designer Robert Wierzel’s previous work at STC includes Man of La Mancha, As You Like It, The Taming of the Shrew, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Little Foxes. Award-winning Sound Designer Ken Travis, who last worked with Paul on his production of Man of La Mancha, will also join the artistic team.
