GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE Star Kristen Beth Williams to Lead Lyric Stage's CAMELOT

Lyric Stage opens its 24th season with Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's Broadway classic CAMELOT, September 9-18, in the Irving Arts Center's Carpenter Performance Hall, 3333 N. MacArthur Boulevard in Irving, Texas.

The production will feature the 38-piece Lyric Stage Orchestra playing Robert Russell Bennett and Philip J. Lang's original Broadway orchestrations.

Relive the time-honored legend of King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot and the Knights of the Round Table. This enchanting fable of chivalry, majesty and brotherhood is a four-time, Tony Award-winning musical. Lerner & Loewe's glorious score includes the classics "If Ever I Would Leave You," "The Simple Joys of Maidenhood," and the title song, "Camelot."

Len Pfluger returns to Lyric Stage after helming last season's critically acclaimed Grand Hotel to direct CAMELOT. Conducting the 38-piece Lyric Stage Orchestra is Lyric Stage music director Jay Dias. Fight choreography is by Bill Lengfelder.
