Taylor Trensch, Delphi Borich, Ann Sanders, More Join CAMELOT Broadway Revival
It’s looking like a reservation at The Round Table is going to be pretty tough to get now. Most of the cast for Lincoln Center Theater’s Broadway revival of Camelot has been revealed, Dakin Matthews joining as Merlyn/Pellinore, Taylor Trensch as Mordred, Marilee Talkington as Morgan Le Fey, Anthony Michael Lopez as Sir Dinadan, Fergie Philippe as Sir Sagramore, and Danny Wolohan as Sir Lionel.
They join the previously announced Andrew Burnap as Arthur, Phillipa Soo as Guenevere, and Jordan Donica as Lancelot Du Lac. Rounding out the ensemble will be Delphi Borich, Matías De La Flor, Sola Fadiran, Rachel Fairbanks, Nkrumah Gatling, Christian Mark Gibbs, Holly Gould, Monte Greene, Edwin Joseph, Tesia Kwarteng, James Romney, Ann Sanders, Britney Nicole Simpson, Philip Stoddard, Valerie Torres-Rosario, Frank Viveros, and Paul Whitty.
Camelot begins previews March 9 at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre ahead of an April 13 opening night. The production features a new book by Aaron Sorkin, based on the original by Alan Jay Lerner, and direction by Bartlett Sher.
The score has music by Frederick Loewe and lyrics by Lerner. Originally premiering in 1960 with Richard Burton as Arthur and Julie Andrews as Guenevere, it was Lerner and Loewe’s follow-up to My Fair Lady. Based on The Once and Future King by T.H. White, Camelot explores the quest for democracy, the striving for justice, and the often tragic struggles between passion and aspiration, between lovers and kingdoms. Notable songs include “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “The Lusty Month of May,” and the title song.
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.
