Camelot in Concert at the London Palladium is presented by live music and event promoters Cuffe and Taylor in association with theatre producers Lambert Jackson Productions.
Talking about the news, Lambert Jackson Creative Director Eliza Jackson said: “With Ramin, Bradley and Lucy as the legendary love triangle at the heart of Camelot in Concert, we are delighted to now announce Julie, Ivano, Newtion and Georgi as joining the cast – adding to the incredible display of talent for this show, which will be very special indeed.
“Lerner and Loewe created the most soaring music with wonderfully descriptive lyrics and to be given the opportunity to bring this story to life at the magnificent London Palladium is something we very much look forward to doing.”
The musical originally opened on Broadway in 1960 starring Julie Andrews and the late Richard Burton. The production won four Tony Awards and resulted in several revivals and the 1967 movie of the same name. In August 1964, the show first opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane where it ran for more than 500 performances.
