Set in 1860's 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 imperious King brings to Siam to tutor his many wives and children. Starring Kelli O'Hara and Jose Llana.
A strong-willed English schoolteacher comes to love her pupils — the royal children of Siam — and maybe Siam's imperious, magnetic King as well. The ravishingly tuneful score includes "Something Wonderful," "Shall We Dance," "I Whistle a Happy Tune" and "Getting To Know You." Based on Anna and the King of Siam.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
