The Lincoln Center Theater announced Monday that it will stage a revival of the classic musical “Camelot” on Broadway this fall, featuring a new book by screenwriter Aaron Sorkin.

The revival is to be directed by Bartlett Sher, who in 2019 made a one night concert of “Camelot,” starring Lin-Manuel Miranda to benefit the Lincoln Center Theater. The project will be a second Broadway joint venture between Sher and Sorkin, who previously collaborated on a stage adaptation of “Kill a mockingbirdwhich opened in 2018. Sher has also directed several Golden Age musicals for the nonprofit Lincoln Center Theater, including “South Pacific,” “The king and me” and “my lovely lady.”

“Camelot”, first staged on Broadway in 1960, is based on the novel “The Once and Future King”, which, in turn, was based on the British legend of King Arthur. The Lincoln Center Theater described the show as “about the quest for democracy, the struggle for justice, and the tragic struggle between passion and aspiration, between lovers and kingdoms”.

“Camelot” features music by Frederick Loewe and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner; Lerner and Loewe also wrote “My Fair Lady”. The Lincoln Center Theater said Sorkin’s book would be “reimagined for the 21st century”, but based on the original written by Lerner.

The musical has been revived several times on Broadway, the last in 1993, and was adapted into a film in 1967.

The new production is scheduled to begin performances Nov. 3 and open Dec. 8 at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater, which is a 1,080-seat Broadway house. No casting has been announced.
