THE multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theatre’s production of ‘The King And I’ comes to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis live from London’s iconic Palladium.
Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, “Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen” Kelli O’Hara takes to the stage alongside Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe 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 school teacher 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, 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 one of the greatest musicals from the golden age of musicals.
