Two worlds collide at The Kimmel Center in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this
"breathtaking and exquisite" (The New York Times) musical, directed by Bartlett
Sher. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein's finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that
features such beloved classics as "Getting To Know You," "I Whistle a Happy Tune," "Hello
Young Lovers," "Shall We Dance" and "Something Wonderful." Set in 1860's Bangkok, the
musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops
between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist
King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.
Winner of the 2015 Tony Award® for Best Musical Revival, THE KING AND I is "too beautiful
to miss" (New York Magazine).
There will be a post-show talk back on the March 23rd matinee performance of The King
and I, open to all ticket holders!
Runtime: 2 hours and 50 minutes including one 20 minute intermission
Note: There will be fog and haze effects as well as strobe lighting in use during the
performance of Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I.
