The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I comes to cinemas in this unmissable event recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium.
Making their West End debuts, Broadway’s “undisputed Queen” (The Sunday Times) Kelli O’Hara reprises her Tony Award-winning performance as Anna Leonowens alongside Tony- and Oscar-nominated Ken Watanabe as the King of Siam. Also returning to her Tony Award-winning role as Lady Thiang is Ruthie Ann Miles.
Set in 1860s Bangkok, this beloved 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 teach his many wives and children.
Boasting one of the finest scores ever written including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You and Shall we Dance, and featuring a company of more than 50 world-class performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre – it is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals.
