CAMELOT had its Broadway premiere at the Majestic Theatre this day 56 years ago on 3 December, 1960. In honour here is a rare pic of a backstage visit paid by one Queen to another.
“NEW YORK A Pair of Queens: Farah (L) of Iran and Julie Andrews, the Guenevere of Broadway’s CAMELOT, get together backstage after a performance of the hit musical. The Iranian Queen was in New York while the Shah was touring US military bases. Note ‘royal’ similarity in position of hands.” (UPI TELEPHOTO, 15 Apr. 1962).
Sleigh bells ring…city sidewalks dressed in holiday style…yep, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and that can only mean one thing here in the Parallel Julieverse: time for our annual 12 Days of Christmas Julieganza!
