(VIDEO) CAMELOT (revisited)

This video was made on Aug 29, 2010.

It's fun to discuss how in the world John Cullum, who was not a singer, managed to get his first job in a Broadway musical.

Back in those days, John Cullum was working mostly as an understudy, doing bit parts for Joseph Papp's "Shakespeare in the Park," and going to auditions for musicals that he invariably flubbed!

The night John went on for one of actors who was playing a rather important part, he was discovered by Allan Lerner's right hand man, and our lives changed.

I just read a Mary Stuart novel about Mordred and I was thinking about Camelot. How I loved that musical, and its story, and the books it was based on!
