Camelot's original stars in the 1960 stage version were Richard Burton as Arthur, Julie Andrews as Guenevere, Robert Goulet as Lancelot, Roddy McDowall as Mordred, and John Cullum as Sir Lionel and understudy for Burton (Cullum later took over the role of Mordred). Directed by Moss Hart, the original Broadway production opened at the Majestic Theater on December 3, 1960, and played 874 performances. After initially faltering at the box office, the show became a notable hit after the cast made an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.
The London production of Camelot opened in August 1964 and featured Laurence Harvey as Arthur, Elizabeth Larner as Guenevere and Barry Kent as Lancelot. Richard Burton reprised his role as Arthur in a revival that ran during the summer of 1980 at the New York State Theatre / Lincoln Center. Christine Ebersole played Guenevere and Richard Muenz was Lancelot. The show was revived on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theater in 1981 and broadcast on HBO a year later, starring Richard Harris as Arthur, Meg Bussert as Guenevere, and Richard Muenz as Lancelot. Harris, who had starred in the film, and Muenz also took the show on tour nationwide. Another revival was in 1987 with Robert Goulet cast in the role of Arthur.
