The multi award-winning production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King And I comes to conquer the iconic London Palladium in Spring 2018, along with original Broadway cast members Kelli O’Hara and Ken Watanabe.
Having claimed four Tony Awards during its 16-month run at Lincoln Center Theater in 2015, including Best Musical Revival, and following a record-breaking USA tour, this critically acclaimed production of a musical classic makes an eagerly awaited West End transfer.
Set in 1860’s Bangkok, The King And I 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 in an effort to modernise the country. But this appointment leads to a bitter conflict – and, secretly, a burgeoning love – between the two, neither of whom are prepared to admit their feelings.
