About The Musical
The theatrical musical King and I did its first ever show on May 2nd 1977 under the production of Uris Theatre and at that time Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II were the composer and the lyricist. King and I is the story of Anna, who is a British school teacher and has arrived in Siam. Despite her resolute attitude and the strength of will, little does she know that she is actually the one who will end up being taught; not by the people but by the cultural richness and the inherent complicated nature of this land. What makes things even more problematic is her obliviousness of the connection she is going to develop with the domineering king of the Siamese land.
