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.
Lincoln Center Theater’s THE KING AND I is the winner of the 2015 Tony Award® for Best Musical Revival. Featuring a score of treasured songs including “Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Getting to Know You,” and “Shall We Dance."
With a cast of more than 50, including Best Actress Tony Award® winner Kelli O’Hara (South Pacific) and Best Featured Actress Tony winner Ruthie Ann Miles (Here Lies Love), and Hoon Lee (Banshee) this “first-rate, sumptuous” (The New York Times) production is "too beautiful to miss" (New York Magazine).
