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.

In the words of Bartlett Sher, director of the 2015 Broadway production and the first national tour, “Great classics come back to us when we need them the most. In order to live up to the scale of its ambition, we have to go both backward and forward in time. It’s like having one foot in the past as deeply as we can, one foot in the present, and our eyes looking out as far ahead as we can to see how it resonates.”

Tony Award®–winning director Bartlett Sher was reunited with the award-winning creative team from the Lincoln Center Theater Productions of South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza. The creative team for this new production includes direction by Shelly Butler, based on Bartlett Sher’s original direction, featuring sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber (seven-time Tony Award® winner, including The King and I), lights by Donald Holder, sound by Scott Lehrer, musical supervision by Theodore Sperling and casting by Jason Styres, CSA. Tony Award® winner Christopher Gattelli’s choreography, based on the original choreography by Jerome Robbins, will be recreated for this tour.
