About The King and I

Due to phenomenal demand, the multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King And I has extended its engagement for a final three weeks to Saturday 29th September at London's iconic Palladium. This is the very last opportunity West End audiences will have to see the Broadway stars reprise their original roles on the London stage.

Five extra matinees on Thursdays (30 August, 6, 13, 20 and 27 September) have been added to the London Palladium performance schedule. This follows continued unprecedented demand for tickets, with early performances already sold out

Making their West End debuts are the original Broadway stars; reprising her Tony Award-winning performance and ‘Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen’ (The Sunday Times), Kelli O’Hara (Anna), Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King),and reprising her Tony Award-winning performance, Ruthie Ann Miles (Lady Thiang). Joining the cast are major Japanese film and television star Takao Osawa as the Kralahome, trusted adviser to The King of Siam, and West End star of Aladdin, Dean John-Wilson and Na-Young Jeon as the young lovers, Lun Tha and Tuptim.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

With a superior score of treasured songs 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.

The greatest musical from the golden age of musicals. A once in a life time opportunity – book now for performances to 29th September.
