Tuesday, May 01, 2018 – It’s May! It’s May! The Lusty Month of May! And the Musical Is?


Tuesday, May 01, 2018 – It’s May! It’s May! The Lusty Month of May! And the Musical Is?

It’s May’ It’s May; the lusty month of May. Can you name that musical? If you can, I will let you take me to the fair.

I can hear the final Jeopardy music playing as you think of (or Google) the answer.

I will give you some hints:

  • The musical premiered on Broadway in 1960 and closed in 1963 after 873 performances. There was a revival of the production in 1981.
  • The Tony for Best Musical that year went to Bye Bye Birdie.
  • The lead for the Broadway version did win the Tony for Best Performance by a Lead Actor.

Here is that Tony winningLead Actor from the 1960 musical in a 1978 version singing the title song. Watch as one of the greatest actors just walks onto the stage, puts his hands in his pockets and opens his mouth.

Don’t let it be forgot
That once there was a spot
For one brief shining moment that was known
As Camelot.
