Before there was Kate and Leo. Before Brad and Angelina. And long before Kristen and Robert, there was Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero. The lush musical film "Camelot," starring Redgrave and Nero, came to theaters my sophomore year in high school, when I was as vulnerable to romance as I ever would be. As if the doomed love affair between Guinevere and Lancelot were not enough to wring the heart of a schoolgirl, there was the rumor —...

When Lerner and Loewe's "Camelot" debuted on Broadway in 1960 with a cast headed by Richard Burton as King Arthur, Julie Andrews as Guinevere and Robert Goulet, an unknown Canadian in his first starring role, as Lancelot, the musical became an instant hit. Fifty-three years later, "Camelot" retains its luster, especially in 2nd Star's current production, now playing at Bowie Playhouse in White Marsh Park. Frederick Loewe's music and Alan Jay Lerner's lyrics are magic. Lerner is also responsible for the book, allowing King Arthur's message of hope and idealism to permeate almost every scene.

This week in Storybrooke, there was no sign of Rumpelstiltskin and only five seconds of Regina. No worries though, as we got our dose of evil this week from Cora. The episode also showed us the brief relationship of Snow and Charming's mother, as well as her and Emma's plan to find a way back to Storybrooke. Also, Henry continued to be the absolute worst. Ogres hunt by sound? Let me go ahead and fire my gun. We pick up where we left off from last week's episode: Emma and Snow are stuck in the pit with Cora.

The first thing to love or hate about "First Knight" is its audacity. In retelling the love triangle between Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot, it takes the sacred canon of Arthurian legend and says cheekily, "No thank you." In this Camelot, they make up a lot and they forget a lot.Among the forgotten: England, Mordred, the Lady in the Lake, Merlin (Merlin!), Lancelot's knighthood, the Sword in the Stone, Excalibur, and any awareness that the story owes an allegiance to tradition. Instead, with the blase insouciance that Hollywood used to treat the classics (famous Hollywood credit line: "A Midsummer's Night Dream," by William Shakespeare; additional dialogue by Sam Katz)

A place where the seasons and weather are forever fixed and unchangeable would probably be pretty dull, but that's the way things are in Lerner and Loewe's "Camelot." It also describes the placid feel of the touring production starring Robert Goulet at the Lyric Opera House.King Arthur's wise teacher, Merlyn, was said to be able to "remember the future," so he probably could have predicted that Goulet, who made his Broadway debut in the role of Lancelot in 1960, would return to the now-classic musical more than three decades later as older-but-wiser King Arthur.

The opening of Lerner and Loewe's classic musical "Camelot" last weekend marked Pasadena Theatre Company's arrival at its home in the Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts, a state-of-the-art facility that easily accommodates this large-scale production. I'd rank "Camelot" - an ideal choice for the Brooklyn Park's center's first extended run - as the biggest and best show the company has mounted in the past five years. With its 45-member cast and 14-piece orchestra, creative staging and dazzling special effects, the Pasadena troupe uses all that the 900-seat theater offers in sound, lighting and stage space flexibility.

Hilariously, Touchstone Pictures has promoted King Arthur as a fresh tale, not a clone, and one or two smart publications have taken the bait. Still, it plays like a remake - not of Knights of the Round Table (1953) but of director Antoine Fuqua's previous Tears of the Sun (2003). To name the most pertinent similarities: A commando unit treks through war-torn territory on a perilous snatch-and-grab mission (in contemporary Nigeria there, antique northern Britain here). Its chief (Bruce Willis as a top Navy SEAL, Clive Owen as King Arthur)

Although Friday's performance of Camelot was canceled by 7 inches of snow - beyond the "legal limit" in the mythical kingdom - J. Ernest Green's Annapolis Chorale and soloists brought the classic musical to life Saturday for a capacity audience at Maryland Hall. Lerner and Loewe's Camelot was the chorale's fifth annual "Broadway in Concert" production. Earlier concerts explored Damon Runyon's New York in Guys and Dolls, the Scottish Highlands of Brigadoon, the Russian village of Fiddler on the Roof and the Yorkshire moors of The Secret Garden.

Give cable channel TNT credit for a great idea and spending $20 million to try to bring it off with a cast led by Angelica Huston, Julianna Margulies and Joan Allen. But, if you decide to spend tomorrow and Monday nights with The Mists of Avalon miniseries, don't expect great television. This re-imaging of the Arthurian legend from a female point of view is nothing if not uneven - one minute dazzling you with lush, mythic storytelling, the next leaving you with a sense that you're watching a bad, prime-time, soap opera version of Camelot with lame English accents, weird bedroom couplings, and a few over-the-top performances worthy of Larry Hagman or Joan Collins.
