Aaron Sorkin‘s “reimagined” production of Camelot begins previews begin on 3.9.23. The official opening happens on Thursday, 4.13.23. Andrew Burnap as Arthur, Phillipa Soo as Guinevere and Jordan Donica as Lancelot. Not quite on the level of Richard Burton, Julie Andrews and Robert Goulet, are they?

The question is “why?” — why would Sorkin want to fiddle around with a 63-year-old Lerner & Loewe musical that came to be known as a metaphor for the JFK years? What’s the point?
