Artus Excalibur Review - Broadway musical

The musical "Artus Excalibur" tells the legend of King Arthur and his fabled sword in a way full of captivating stage play and enchanting music. From the moment the curtain rises, viewers are transferred to a mythical world entire of knights, magic, and epic fights. First come robust set designs, which are breathtaking, and performances by the cast that are vocally strong. Unforgettable stirring moments convey the spirit of heroism and sense of destiny in each musical number. Still, too often the plotting's pace is put into a perspective that is sometimes rushed, not giving complete depth to several character arcs. Nevertheless, "Artus Excalibur" becomes an absorbing spectacle, intermingling legend and the opulence of musical theatre magnificently. The choreography is one more high point, with only the most complex dance numbers ever fit for the thematic dramatic tension and emotional highs. Costuming shines no less, being as elaborate in design as the sets that flesh out the medieval setting in exacting detail. Orchestrations are thick and fast, adding a plentiful musical landscape to complement the whole. Every song is designed to further tell the story along with showcasing the talents of the performers.

In terms of story, "Artus Excalibur" seems to strike a fair balance between the times of intense action and quieter, more introspective scenes in which the motivations and inner struggles of characters are depicted. Their chemistry brings authenticity to the relationships, therefore driving the journey even more.

In general, "Artus Excalibur" is a kind of musical theater success that takes a classic legend and transforms it into something new, fresh, and innovative. In a general sense, it promises to be one of those must-watch productions for genre fans and novices because, besides a reasonable degree of brilliant performances, the visuals and score are equally laudable. There would be little point in picking over so many smaller areas where the plot could have been honed and polished just a little more as compared to the massive success of this production. It is bound to leave an indelible impression in the theatrics' memory.
