The King and I

May 15 - May 20, 2018


2 hours 55 minutes with intermission

Event Description

Two worlds collide in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this “breathtaking and exquisite” (The New York Times) musical directed by Bartlett Sher, a College of the Holy Cross graduate.  One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, The King and I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” 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.  Winner of the 2015 Tony® Award for Best Musical Revival, The King and I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).

Tickets are $51 to $91, with discounts available to theatre members and groups of ten or more.  Please contact the box office at 877.571.SHOW (7469) for more information.
