Music by Frederick Loewe
Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
Book Adapted by David Lee
Choreography by Connor Gallagher
Directed by Mark Lamos
Westport Country Playhouse
Jason Robards Theatre
Lamos’s direction is as imaginative as Lee’s book adaptation. Connor Gallagher’s choreography is superb, especially the joust in which Lancelot creams his competitors on Michael Yeargan’s marvelous minimal set.
Brittany Coleman also shines as Guenevere. She has an effervescent quality, a lovely voice and infectious smile, and really stands out with her sassy frolic, thanks to choreographer Connor Gallagher, during song, “The Lusty Month of May.”
Patrick Andrews as Mordred is everything you want in an evil, snarky, oily villain who also happens to be Arthur’s illegitimate son. He sings, he dances, and his two numbers with the 4 men: “The Seven Deadly Virtues” and “Fie on Goodness” show off his excellent dancing and Connor Gallagher’s imaginative choreography.
Director Mark Lamos and his choreographer Connor Gallagher do excellent work staging the show and, as stated, it is something of an occasion to see a new production of “Camelot,” especially with a cast and production that is this grand.
Shout-outs also must go to Connor Gallagher for inventive and beautiful choreography...
