For 50 years, the legend of King Arthur has been dazzling stage audiences, with no signs of slowing down. Now the Glendale Centre Theatre has taken a turn with "Camelot" and has done quite an impressive job in its rendition.
Those who are old enough to remember often associate Camelot with the Kennedy administration, as it later became known that the president would listen to the soundtrack before settling into bed. Thus it seems fitting that in 2010, with a president who draws a considerable amount of comparisons to Kennedy in office, that "Camelot" would again be popular.
Of course, the story of "Camelot" has been beaten into our cultural consciousness via books, movies, radio and TV. I'm sure there's even a video game or two based on King Arthur and his knights of the round table. Yet it's "Camelot" the musical, complete with songs that are still catchy a half-century later and a story that is timeless enough to be enjoyed by all ages, that people continue to fall in love with.
