The Legacy of Lerner and Loewe
For those unfamiliar with Camelot, the musical tells the story of King Arthur and his quest to create a utopian society based on the principles of chivalry, honor, and love. The show premiered on Broadway in 1960 and has since become a beloved classic. Camelot was the much anticipated follow up from the iconic duo Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe after My Fair Lady.
