Two worlds collide in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this breathtaking and exquisite (The New York Times) musical, directed by Bartlett Sher, a College of the Holy Cross graduate. One of Rodgers & Hammersteins 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 1860s 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).
