WILMINGTON — Theater enthusiasts are invited to fall in love all over again with Broadway’s sweeping tale of passion, chivalry, and betrayal.

Insisting that might for right will be the law of his land, King Arthur and his new queen, Guinevere, create a realm where idealism can flourish even in the Dark Ages.
