Show Summary - The King and I
First premiering on Broadway in 1951, The King and I is the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical that takes place in Siam (Thailand) in the 1860s. It is based on the 1944 novel Anna and the King of Siam, which is itself based on the memoirs of a British governess to the children of King of Siam, who then falls in love with the king and brings a modern sentiment to Siam. This revival is produced by Lincoln Center Theater and goes up at their Broadway venue, the Vivian Beaumont Theatre. The clashing of two cultures where a modernized west seeks to leave their imprint on an ancient, less westernized civilization is a theme that still resonates today. The audience is transposed to 19th century Siam, thanks to the wizardry of set designer Michael Yeargan and costume designer Catherine Zuber. The play is choreographed by Christopher Gattelli but based on original choreography by Jerome Robbins. Anna Leonowens is played by Kelli O’Hara (The Bridges of Madison County, Nice Work if You Can Get It, South Pacific, The Pajama Game), and the King of Siam is played by Ken Watanabe (Inception, The Last Samurai) making his Broadway debut.

The King and I on Broadway
  What Is THE KING AND I Like?
Directed by Bartlett Sher (The Bridges of Madison County, Golden Boy, South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza), this Lincoln Center revival of The King and I is a spectacularly beautiful and emotionally engaging production. Furthermore, it re-teamed Sher with Kelli O’Hara, who have worked together on several occasions. Shortly after the show's opening in 2015, O'Hara won the Tony Award for Leading Actress in a Musical and Ruthie Ann Miles won the Tony Award for an actress in a Featured Role in a Musical, both for The King and I. The classic story of the quarrelsome relationship that turns to love between Anna and the King of Siam is told brilliantly in Oscar Hammerstein II’s book, with a magnificent score by Richard Rodgers. The show includes such memorable songs as “Getting to Know You,” “Shall We Dance,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” and “Something Wonderful.”

Is THE KING AND I Good for Kids?
