‘I DOUBT I’LL EVER SEE A BETTER PRODUCTION IN MY LIFETIME’ The Wall Street Journal
‘London’s theatrical event of 2018’ (Sunday Express), the multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King And I will be playing at London's iconic Palladium for a strictly limited 14 week run from June.
Making their West End debuts are the original Broadway stars; reprising her Tony Award-winning performance is ‘Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen’ (The Sunday Times), Kelli O’Hara (Anna) alongside Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King).
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.
