The King and I description

The King and I tickets are available now!

The King and I is returning to the West End for a limited run in 2024. The Tony Award-winning Lincoln Center Theater revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical heads to the Dominion Theatre following on from its record-breaking season at the London Palladium and sell-out UK tour.

What is The King And I about?

The fifth musical by the team of Rodgers and Hammerstein, The King and I is a famous musical that opened on Broadway back in 1951. It tells the story of an English schoolteacher, Anna Lenonowens, who travels to the Kingdom of Siam (now Thailand) in the 1860s to teach the children of the King of Siam. The musical explores the cultural clash and evolving relationship between Anna and King Mongkut. It delves into themes of tradition, modernisation, and love. With unforgettable musical numbers like 'Getting To Know You', 'Shall We Dance?' and 'I Whistle A Happy Tune', The King and I is a timeless classic and beloved musical for theatregoers.

It returns to the West End for the first time since a revival back in 2018 with a limited run at the Dominion Theatre in 2024.

We loved “The King and I”!

I grew up listening to the music from “The King and I” on vinyl and have watched the movie with Yul Brenner and the remake with Jodi Foster. I can sing along with all the songs! This performance did not disappoint! Loved the choreography and costumes too. Just a great love story and we are so glad we went to see it!

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.

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...

Review: THE KING AND I at the London Palladium

by Phil Willmott | Tuesday, July 17 2018, 14:17

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.

Classic Musical THE KING AND I Returns to London and You’re in for a Treat!

by Phil Willmott | Friday, January 19 2018, 20:32

The King and I 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.
