Melissa had the pleasure of starring in CAMELOT with Jeremy Irons in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl, performing for over 80,000 people per week. Their chemistry was recognized by all the critics and a real-life friendship began. Jeremy and Melissa reprised their roles again in New York City a few years later in a one-night only benefit concert on Broadway at a sold-out Shubert Theater with a full orchestra.

Gordon Hunt directed the re-staging of this classic musical at the 20,000 seat Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic conducted by John Mauceri. Based on the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, Camelot, written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, is adapted from the T.H. White novel The Once and Future King. It is a grand and glorious production full of pageantry, music and romance. Camelot brings to life King Arthur’s noble quest for a unified world, and civil honor forces him to choose between his wife Guenevere, his best friend Lancelot, and his kingdom.
