  • The King and I

Tipped to be London’s theatrical event of 2018, the multi award-winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I comes to London's iconic Palladium in spring 2018.

It features the original Broadway stars – Kelli O’Hara, reprising her Tony Award-winning performance, and Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe.

Set in Bangkok of the 1860s, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. With a superior score of treasured songs including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You and Shall We Dance, and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre.

Fresh from London's critical smash hit production of Oslo, director Bartlett Sher reunites the original creative team of Catherine Zuber (Tony Award winner for Best Costume), set designer Michael Yeargan, lighting designer Donald Holder and sound designer Scott Lehrer, with choreography by Christopher Gattelli based on the original choreography by Jerome Robbins.

A once in a life time opportunity, don’t miss the greatest musical from the golden age of theatre.
