King and I, The at Vivian Beaumont Theater
King and I, The
Vivian Beaumont Theater

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 Hoon Lee.

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.
