“The King and I” is directed by Tony Award® winner Bartlett Sher and won four 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Musical. The production is currently playing an open-ended Broadway run at the Vivian Beaumont Theater (150 West 65 Street).
Bartlett Sher is reunited with the award-winning creative team from South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza. “The King and I” has sets by Michael Yeargan; costumes by Catherine Zuber; lights by Donald Holder (all three nominated for 2015 Tony Awards®); sound by Scott Lehrer (2015 Drama Desk Award nomination); and casting by Telsey + Company/Abbie Brady-Dalton, CSA. “The King and I” features choreography by Christopher Gattelli based on the original choreography by Jerome Robbins.
One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, “The King and I” boasts a score which features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance,” “I Have Dreamed,” and “Something Wonderful.” 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 modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.
