The revival will be directed by Bartlett Sher, the nine-time Tony Award nominee behind recent revivals of My Fair Lady, The King and I and South Pacific as well as the new To Kill a Mockingbird play.

Sher will once again work with Aaron Sorkin, who adapted To Kill a Mockingbird, on a new book for the musical.

The revival will begin previews at the the Vivian Beaumont Theater on 3 November with an official opening night on 8 December.

Further details on casting and creatives are to be announced.

Camelot tells the story of Arthur, the idealistic King, who hopes to create a kingdom built on honour and dignity. His ideals, however, are tested when his lovely queen, Guenevere, falls in love with the young knight, Lancelot creating one of the most famous love triangles in literary history.

From the writers of My Fair Lady, songs include ‘If Ever I Would Leave You’, ‘How To Handle A Woman’, ‘The Lusty Month of May’ and ‘Camelot’.”

Camelot debuted on Broadway in 1960, where it was last revived in 1993, while a West End production played for over 500 performances from 1964.
