By far the best!
29 May 2002 | by (New Hampshire, USA) – See all my reviews

I have seen many performances of Camelot, and this is by far the best. I hope it will soon be released on DVD so everyone can enjoy this truly fabulous production! The "film" versions of Broadway musicals have always lacked the special feeling of "live theater"- but this production truly captures the unique feeling of the New York stage.
