The once and future King
Lerner and Lowe's classic returns to D.C in 2018 with this new production from the Shakespeare Theatre Company. Based on the enduring legend of King Arthur and his Round Table, this four time Tony Winner features a lush and evocative score from the duo, along with plenty of romance, magic and chivalry.
Enchanting generations since its Broadway debut in 1960, we follow Arthur as he marries the maiden Guinevere and introduces a code of honor and justice to his Knights, bringing peace to the Kingdom. But not everyone is as keen to adhere to his idealism. Division soon follows, and not just from outside the castle walls. Courage, fidelity, love and goodness are to be tested, and it is up to Arthur to choose the kind of ruler he must be.
