On Monday, March 4 at 6:30 pm! The medieval court of King Arthur and The Knights of the Round Table will come to life on the stage of the Vivian Beaumont Theater when Lin-Manuel Miranda stars as King Arthur in Lerner & Loewe's CAMELOT, directed by Bartlett Sher, for a one-night-only concert event to benefit Lincoln Center Theater.

CAMELOT, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's 1960 follow up to My Fair Lady, is a story full of romance and intrigue.
