Set in 1860s 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.
The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre – it is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals. Featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers, a full scale orchestra and classic songs such as 'I Whistle a Happy Tune', 'Getting to Know You' and 'Shall We Dance', this critically acclaimed the multi Tony Award winning production will visit the Bristol Hippodrome as part of its international tour.
This unmissable production follows a critically acclaimed Broadway smash hit run and a sell-out record breaking season at both the world famous London Palladium and Tokyo Theatre Orb.
Performing as Anna, fresh from her West End success, will be Annalene Beechey and reprising his critically acclaimed USA national performance as The King will be Darren Lee. The two stars have been wowing audiences as the Rodgers & Hammerstein’s multi-award winning musical embarked on its international tour earlier this year and now the acting and dancing tour de force will be reunited in Bristol this winter.
