Based on “Anna and the King of Siam” by Margaret Landon
Original Choreography by Jerome Robbins
This 1952 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical, a classic by Rodgers and Hammerstein, is based on “Anna and the King of Siam,” a 1944 novel by Margaret Landon. Anna is a widowed British schoolteacher brought to Siam to tutor the King’s many children. When she arrives, though she enjoys an instant connection to the students, she struggles with cultural differences and with the headstrong King. Through her kindness and persistence, Anna eventually connects with the King, helping to fuel mutual feelings of social understanding and cultural acceptance and openness.
“The King and I” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization. www.concordtheatricals.com
