The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theatre’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I is back by popular demand. Directed by the remarkably talented, nine time Tony-nominated Bartlett Shur and Recorded from London’s iconic Palladium, you can now watch this stage play on screens across the country this December!
Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, Kelli O’Hara (Anna) takes to the stage alongside Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King) in a powerhouse performance. Also returning to her Tony Award winning role as Lady Thiang is Ruthie Ann Miles.
Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. With one of the finest scores ever written, and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of musical theatre – it is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals.
