The Broadway is not a stranger to Rodgers and Hammerstein shows. With its large seating capacity and (relatively) large orchestra pit, it can accommodate big shows, like ours: Cinderella! Two other successful Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals re-located to the Broadway during their runs: Oklahoma! and South Pacific. And then, in 1985, The King and I had its second Broadway revival starring Yul Brynner and Mary Beth Peil. Mary Beth remembers her dressing room being on the second floor stage right at the Broadway, though the lay-out backstage has changed considerably! You can see a stunning picture of these two stars from the Playbill.
