The King and I
Venue To Be Announced.
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Broadway hit musical The King and I comes to London’s West End.
Bartlett Sher’s Tony Award winning Broadway revival of The King and I is to open in London’s West End in late 2016/early 2017.
Based on Margaret Landon’s 1944 novel “Anna and the King of Siam,” Rodgers and Hammerstein Tony-award winning musical is a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of East versus West. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, The King and I boasts a score which features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance,” “I Have Dreamed” and “Something Wonderful”.
The Broadway production of The King and I won four 2015 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical and Best Costume Design of a Musical.
Two worlds collide in this classic musical directed by Bartlett Sher (South Pacific). The year is 1862, and British schoolteacher Anna Leonowens has arrived in Siam to instruct the royal children. But despite her sharp wit and strong will, nothing has prepared Anna for the lessons this rich and complicated new land has to teach her—or for the powerful connection she will forge with its imperious King.
To be announce
The King and I is based on Margaret Landon’s novel, Anna and the King of Siam with music by Richard Rodgers, book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and original choreography by Jerome Robbins. The production will be direct by Bartlett Sher with further creative to be announced.
