The Muny's seventh and final show of its 94th season, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's The King and I, plays the famed outdoor venue Aug. 6-12.
Directed by Rob Ruggiero and choreographed by Ralph Perkins, the cast is headed by Kevin Gray (The King of Siam), who returns to The Muny after previously playing the Engineer in Miss Saigon, and Laura Michelle Kelly, in her Muny debut, as Anna Leonowens.
"Set against an exotic background, The King and I," according to previous production notes, "is the moving true story of a young English widow and her son who travel to Siam to tutor the King's children. In Siam, she encounters an unfamiliar world full of grand beauty, but mixed with rigid Old World traditions. As the King decides how to bring his country into a new age, he and Anna begin to see beyond traditions and prejudices into what makes people special and what makes a man a true king."
The lush Rodgers and Hammerstein score includes "Getting to Know You," "Shall We Dance?," "I Whistle a Happy Tune" and "Hello, Young Lovers."
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
