THE KING & I

Two worlds collide in this “breathtaking and exquisite” (The New York Times) musical, based on the 2015 Tony Award®-winning Lincoln Center Theater production.  One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You”,   “I Whistle a Happy Tune”, “Hello Young Lovers”, “Shall We Dance”, and “Something Wonderful”.  

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the King – a modernist in an imperialistic world – brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. THE KING AND I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).  “I doubt I’ll see a better production in my lifetime,” says Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal.
