"In Bartlett Sher's rejuvenating revival, Marin Mazzie and Daniel Dae Kim possess astute comic timing, and they make beautiful, jangling comic music together."

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, this “first-rate, sumptuous” (The New York Times) production is "too beautiful to miss" (New York Magazine).

"I doubt I'll see a better production in my lifetime."

    THE KING AND I closes this Sunday, and I could not conclude my running account of the production without checking in with Marin Mazzie.

    Actors and Their Remedies

    A visit to the dressing room of Ruthie Ann Miles (Lady Thiang) is quite an experience. Throughout the room sit enough remedies to stock a general store.

With gratitude to the Stacey and Eric Mindich Fund for Musical Theater at LCT for their leading support of this production.
