Camelot - 1964 - West End

Based on The Once and Future King by T. H. White

This irresistible musical takes you inside the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Arthur's dream of creating a utopian kingdom is complicated by love for his new Queen, Guenevere, and friendship with his favorite knight, Lancelot. A ravishing story of passion, chivalry, and betrayal has a gorgeous score that includes "If Ever I Would Leave You," "What Do the Simple Folk Do?," and, of course, "Camelot."

Based on true events and strikingly relevant today, DAISY explores the moment in TV history when the political attack ad was born. In the autumn of 1964, one year after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, bloody turmoil over Civil Rights was spilling onto the streets, a fearful ideology that made the threat of nuclear war palpable was growing from the conservative right, and a skirmish in the far-off nation of Vietnam wouldn't go away. With the presidential election looming, an advertising agency working for Lyndon Johnson unleashed the most devastating political commercial ever conceived, the 'Daisy' ad.
