Lin-Manuel Miranda will lead the production as King Arthur, a role originated on Broadway in 1960 by Richard Burton (and reprised by him in 1980). Subsequent Broadway Arthurs included Richard Harris in 1981 (also starred in the 1967 film) and Robert Goulet in 1993. Below, watch as Harris takes on "I Wonder What the King is Doing Tonight" and as Goulet perform's "Camelot (Reprise)".
Miranda will be joined by Solea Pfeiffer as Guenevere, a role created by Julie Andrews and performed by Vanessa Redgrave in the 1967 film. Christine Ebersole took on the role in the 1980 revival, Meg Bussert in 1981, and Patricia Kies in 1993. Below, Sierra Boggess sings "The Lusty Month of May" in a 2012 concert, and Julie Andrews is joined by Burton for "What Do the Simple Folk Do?"
Jordan Donica will complete the love triangle as Sir Lancelot, a role created by Goulet in the 1960 production. Richard Muenz and Steve Blanchard would go on to play the Frenchman in subsequent Broadway productions. Watch as Nathan Gunn sings "C'est Moi" in a 2008 New York Philharmonic concert version and James Barbour performs the Act II classic, "If Ever I Would Leave You."
