Which King are we talking about?This one is not a British king, but the King of Siam (now called Thailand). The musical is based on a book by Margaret Landon in 1944, called Anna and the King of Siam, which itself is based around the memoirs of Anna Leonowens, who was a governess to the children of Kong Mongkut of Siam in the earl 1860s. In the theatre world, The King was originally played by Yul Brynner in both the stage and the film adaptations of The King And I.
That film did quite well, didn’t it?It did! In fact, Brynner won an Oscar in 1956 for his role in the film and his co-star, leading lady Deborah Kerr, was herself nominated for an Oscar too. The musical did pretty well too when it first came out – it won three Tony Awards, including Best Actress (for Gertrude Lawrence), Best Musical and Best Actor (for Brynner again).
Brynner was in both? What a talent he was, to go from film to stage!Very true, he was pretty incredible. But in fact, the stage version came before the film, even though the film is arguably more well-known. The King and I was written by one of the greatest writing partnerships in the 20th century – Rodgers and Hammerstein – so you know it has some pretty catchy tunes in it. Ever heard of “Getting To Know You”, “Something Wonderful” or “Shall We Dance?” We have, and we love them all!
So, who is in this revival then? As much as we love Brynner and Kerr, we imagine it’s not them. Very true,if only we could go back in time and watch them! But the leading pair in Bartlett Sher’s latest version are pretty spectacular too. Playing Anna is six-time Tony nominee Kelli O’Hara, who won her last Tony in 2015 for her performance in Sher’s The King And I on Broadway. The King will be played by her co-star Ken Watanabe, who was also nominated for a Tony Award for his role opposite O’Hara. Who would have thought that this role was Watanabe’s first ever stage role? He’s a renowned Japanese film actor, but to gain such praise on your first stage outing? We’re excited to have them both coming across the pond!
I’m sold – where and when? The King And I will play at the London Palladium from June 2018. A revival not to be missed in the theatre calendar!

Fabulous etcetera, etcetera!
It’s a great show with great songs and a very current theme about the role of women in society that my daughter would approve of.

Eileen London Box Office customer
A memorable show
I enjoyed the performance. Anna had a beautiful voice. The acting between Anna and the King was superb, very comical, just as I rembered it from the film. The only downside was that at times it was hard to understand what the King was saying, but it didn't spoil the show for me.
Lisa London Box Office customer
Fantastic show well worth seeing more than once.

marcia London Box Office customer
The King and I - aye aye
Brilliant show, last saw it here with Yul Brynner. This did not disappoint.
Anthony London Box Office customer
A dated story with fabulojus music
Kelli O'Hara was outstanding so was the player of the Kings main wife (name forgotten). For me Something Wonderful was the highlight of the show. Ken Wattanabe was too over the top and I could not hear what he said. The rest was an expensive but enjoyable eveing. Much better than the Elaine Paige show! The story line is dated and quite offensive to the Thai...

Regular readers will know how much I was looking forward to this Broadway import. I saw the production at the Lincoln Centre in New York and, having once directed it myself, I was full of admiration for director Bartlett Sher, who made the storytelling so clear and the more old fashioned elements seem fresh and invigorated.

One of the shows I'm most excited about seeing this year is the London transfer of the last Broadway production of THE KING AND I.
I saw it at the Lincoln Centre and I promise you it’s absolutely exquisite as directed by the rather brilliant Bartlet Sher. I know the piece really well having directed it myself and I was amazed at how Sher had made such absolute sense of it that many of the scenes in this production were a revelation.Read more
