Winner of 4 Tony Awards and celebrated by critics far and wide, Lincoln Center Theater’s acclaimed production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King And I comes to cinemas in an unmissable event recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium!
Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, ‘Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen’ (The Sunday Times) Kelli O’Hara (Anna) takes to the stage alongside Academy Award and Tony nominee Ken Watanabe (The King) in a “powerhouse” (The Times) performance. Also returning to her Tony Award winning role as Lady Thiang is Ruthie Ann Miles.
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 one of the finest scores ever written, including iconic numbers “Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Getting to Know You,” and “Shall We Dance,” and featuring a company of over fifty world-class performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre. Experience it on the big screen, one night only at The Frida!
