Top Tickets: Camelot
Beloved as it is, live treatments of Lerner and Loewe’s masterpiece tend to have a bloated, musty quality. Happily, reviews from this lovingly repackaged road-show version suggest the dust and fat have been dispensed with in all the right places. Trimmed from three hours plus to a svelte 2:20, the show is reportedly tight, lively and captivating, with an ingenious set and a top-notch cast.
