The King and I in London

Starring:

Helen George

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 Leonowens, 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.

The cast and creative of The King and I.

Starring in this exciting return to the West End are Helen George (Call The Midwife) and Darren Lee as the King. More cast are to be announced.

The new revival of The King and I is directed by Tony Award-winner Bart Sher (South Pacific, My Fair Lady). With books and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, the creative team includes Music by Richard Rodgers, set design by Michael Yeargan, costume design by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Donald Holder, sound by Scott Lehrer, and orchestrations by Robert Russell Bennet.

Enjoyed enormously

I knew the show, of course... have even seen a similar production a few years ago. The two leads (the King and Anna) really brought the show to life with... ... his acting, ... his singing. The costumes and dancing of the assorted salves, children, etc... magical! I'm not sure I'd recommend the show for youngsters. I'm NOT one for "protecting" them... but I think the King's outbursts might be confusing, upsetting. And I think that some of the core themes, might not reach them, leaving them puzzled as to why they were watching this.

A fabulous show with a very talented cast. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. There were many laugh out loud moments, and some very touching moments. The child actors were absolutely wonderful throughout. Loved the costumes, and the dance routines. Some crystals could be added to Mrs Anna’s ball gown when she dances with the King to Shall We Dance, to give that extra sparkle and to contribute to the splendour of the moment. Helen George was amazing and captivating. Congratulations to you all. An outstanding success.

A great afternoon in company with the King and I it's a bit of an old time oddity.

Plus side - some brilliant theatrical moments such as the arrival of the ship. Ensemble production at the end. All the children scenes. Absolute barn stormer of We kiss in the Shadow with Tuptim and Lun Tha. Worth coming just for that! Not so plus: Not much chemistry between Anna and The King - or the Captain or indeed anyone. (Others a pleasure to see Helen George in a leading roll). Oddly the Programme we bought did not have an order of musical numbers or who was singing then.

Transported back to the golden years of Hollywood

Helen George was brilliant as Anna, beautiful powerful voice. First wife very good too. I don't think the King had enough magnetism or presence. Hard to beat Yul Bryner. I didn't feel the chemistry between Anna and King. Prince Yulalongchun had the right energy and stance. Tuptim would have looked more striking with hair up in traditional Siam style as well as Siam sari. Staging and scenery could have been more opulent. Seating was tight for legroom and no rails to help me climb up and down as I have MS. My tickets were not emailed to me either, despite ringing before hand. Orchestra were excellent. As usually sweets and snacks terribly over priced, more than double the high street, cinemas do the same but at least their ticket prices are less than £8.

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.
