The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King And I recorded live at London’s iconic Palladium returns to the big screen.
Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, ‘Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen’ (The Sunday Times) Kelli O’Hara takes to the stage alongside Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe in a ‘powerhouse’ (The Times) performance. Also returning to her Tony Award winning role as Lady Thiang is Ruthie Ann Miles.
With one of the finest scores ever written 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 – it is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals.
