Academy Award and Tony Award winner Jeremy Irons will play the role of King Arthur in a one-night-only concert staging of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot this summer to benefit Irish Repertory Theatre.

As previously reported, Melissa Errico and James Barbour, who played Guenevere and Lancelot, respectively, in the Hollywood Bowl’s summer 2005 production of Camelot, will return to those roles for the upcoming concert.

The benefit concert of the classic musical about the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table will be held June 6 at the Shubert Theatre on Broadway.

Charlotte Moore will direct the evening with musical direction by Mark Hartman. Additional casting will be announced shortly. The concert will feature a full orchestra and a chorus of 50.

Camelot — featuring music by Frederick Loewe and book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner — originally opened at Broadway’s Majestic Theatre in Dec. 1960, playing 873 performances before closing Jan. 5, 1963. The premiere company included Richard Burton, Julie Andrews, Robert Goulet, Robert Coote, John Cullum and Roddy McDowall. The classic Lerner and Loewe score boasts such tunes as “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “I Loved You Once in Silence,” “Follow Me,” “I Wonder What the King Is Doing Tonight” and the title tune.

Jeremy on jury for ICCL Film School Competition

Film on Irish transgender person wins rights award


Fri, Jun 12, 2009

A FILM telling the true story of an Irish transgender person was presented with a human rights film award in Dublin last night.

American actor and film-maker Rebecca Miller was among the well-known film world figures at the gala for the Irish Council for Civil Liberties’ (ICCL) Human Rights Film School competition.

Winning short film My Identity was directed by Vittoria Colonna. The documentary tells of the battle and discrimination faced by transgender person Lee and the impact which his identity had on his daughter Siobhán.

“I challenge anyone to watch the winning film and retain a shred of prejudice against transgendered people,” said jury member and film-maker Kirsten Sheridan.

She was joined on the jury by people from the film and human rights world including Rebecca Miller, director Jim Sheridan actors Jeremy Irons and Sinead Cusack and Senator David Norris.

My Identity was among six finalist films screened at the Light House Cinema last night. They ranged in topics from migration and war, to poverty and identity.

The short films were in animation and documentary formats. The competition helped to bring human rights to a wider audience, said ICCL director Mark Kelly.

Migration was the theme of two of the short animated films. Aimed at children, Team Spirit explored the issues faced by a boy from Darfur who is a refugee in Ireland. Pirogues examined the impact of borders on the lives of two couples.

The documentary Children of Manila told the story of three street children in the Philippine capital and revealed the hope that education can provide.

Irish-based documentary, 8 Things to Remember, explored the work of plane spotters at Shannon airport. Since 2003 they have been documenting landings by US military aircraft on their way to Iraq and Afghanistan.

A Life Inside the Frame is a stop-motion animated short exploring the struggle of an outsider to break free from societal constraints.
