Synopsis

Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I based on the critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater production that was the winner of four 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Musical is now thrilling audiences in cities across the world!

Bartlett Sher was reunited with the award-winning creative team from South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza. The creative team for this new production includes direction by Shelly Butler, based on Bartlett Sher's original direction, featuring sets by Michael Yeargan; costumes by Catherine Zuber; lighting by Donald Holder, sound by Scott Lehrer and choreography by Christopher Gattelli based on the original choreography by Jerome Robbins.

One of Rodgers & Hammerstein's finest works, The King and I boasts a score which 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 1860's 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 modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.
