The highly anticipated 2015 revival of this Rodgers and Hammerstein epic musical!Buy Tickets
The Rodgers and Hammerstein epic returns to Broadway in a new production that promises to capture the essence of this much-treasured piece of musical theatre history. Set in 19th Century Thailand, it's the story of a widowed governess, who is charged with teaching the severe King of Thailand's myriad royal offspring, and the journey that they take as they teach each other about respect, culture and love.
Starring five-time Tony Nominee Kelli O'Hara, and Academy Award Nominee Ken Watanabe in his American stage debut, the revival is directed by Bartlett Sher, with the original Jerome Robbins choreography and Robert Russell Bennett orchestrations to be executed by his award winning team.
When The King and I opened, the famous creators had their doubts. Rodgers and Hammerstein joked that audiences were only coming to see if it was better than their previous hit South Pacific, but they needn't have worried. The King and I went on to become an overnight hit, and has played to audiences from Broadway to Bangkok, while its film adaptation, famous for Yul Brenner's commanding performance opposite Deborah Kerr in her voluminous ball-gowns, won five Academy Awards.
Combining their musical elegance and brilliance, dramatics and dancing, The King and I has become synonymous with the great Broadway classics that sweep you away, time and time again.
