Music and Lyrics presents Curve Theatre Leicesterís production

"A full-blown spectacle with classy west end production values and a considerable WOW factor."
- The Guardian
The King and I is loved as one of the greatest musicals of all time. Seen by millions of people across the world since it was first performed in 1951, when it was showered with awards and became the blockbuster Hollywood movie, its glorious soundtrack is still a best seller today.
The heart-warming story of the British governess brought to the court of Siam to tutor the Kingís many children is told using one of the most beautiful scores ever written with sweeping melodies such as The March of the Siamese Children, Shall We Dance, I Whistle A Happy Tune, Hello Young Lovers and the unforgettable Getting To Know You.
This breath-taking new production from the Leicester Curve Theatre, directed by Paul Kerryson, is a lavish, grand-scale spectacle. With giant gold Buddhas, sumptuous costumes, a chorus of adorable children, acrobatic dancers and live music this beautiful production guarantees standing ovations.
The King and I stars Ramon Tikaram as the The King of Siam, whose West End credits include Bombay Dreams, Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar and TV's This Life and Josefina Gabrielle* as Anna whose musical successes include The Witches of Eastwick, Sweet Charity and the lead in Oklahoma! at the National Theatre.
* Josefina Gabriella will not appear on Thursday 7.30pm performance, instead the role of Anna will be played by Lori Haley Fox.
"Paul Kerrysonís lush, spectacular revival of Rodgers and Hammersteinís musical... elegant, splendid and admirable."
