There will be an encore showing of The King And I recorded live at the London Palladium on Saturday 22nd December at 2.30pm.
Set in 1860s Bangkok, this is the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.
With one of the finest scores ever written, including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre – it is arguably the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals.
Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, Kelli O’Hara (Anna) takes to the stage alongside Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King) in this critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater production. Also returning to her Tony Award winning role as Lady Thiang is Ruthie Ann Miles.
