One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, The King and I boasts a score that features beloved classics “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.
The King And I is directed by Tony Award® winner Bartlett Sher, won four 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Musical. The production played 538 performances on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.
Bartlett Sher is reunited with the award-winning creative team from Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza. The King And I features sets by Michael Yeargan; costumes by Catherine Zuber (Tony Award-winning design); lights by Donald Holder; sound by Scott Lehrer; and features choreography by Tony Award-winner Christopher Gattelli based on the original choreography by Jerome Robbins.
