NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Winner of four 2015 Tony Awards®, including Best Revival of a Musical, the Lincoln Center Theater Production of “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I” makes its Nashville premiere Jan. 30-Feb. 4 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Andrew Jackson Hall.

One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, “The King and I” boasts a score featuring beloved classics like “Getting To Know You,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance,” “I Have Dreamed” 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.
