NUVO review
3 stars

While several moments of Camelot veer dangerously close to self-indulgence, and at times the play seems to dare the audience not to laugh at it, one cannot help but be impressed with the sheer scope and heft of Mr. Low’s one-man show. The text — composed of dueling testimonies of war from the noble Lancelot and the vengeful Mordred — is immense, and Mr. Low handles it with an acrobatic grace. The production — built of anachronistic visuals and ominous sound design — is striking, if at times baffling. This challenging piece will surely satisfy some of Indy’s most adventurous theater-goers. - Harry Watermeier
