The multiple Tony award-winning production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I: From The Palladium will be screened in UK and worldwide cinemas for one night only on 29th November (plus an additional US date on 4th December).
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.
Featuring fan favourite show numbers such as Getting to Know You, Whistle a Happy Tune and Shall We Dance, the popular production transferred to the London Palladium in June 2018, with the three original Broadway lead actors reprising their starring roles – Tony Award-winner (Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for The King and I) Kelli O’Hara, Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe and Tony Award-winner (Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical for The King and I) Ruthie Ann Miles.
The London production continues to draw huge critical acclaim, smash box office records – including the biggest grossing week in the London Palladium’s history, taking £1,058,317.50 for an eight performance week, play to packed houses and receive nightly standing ovations.
Directed by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher, it first opened on Broadway in 2015 for a critically acclaimed 16 month run at The Lincoln Center Theater, this was followed by an unprecedented record-breaking sold out USA tour.
Don’t miss your chance to see the show the critics are raving about, etcetera etcetera etcetera…
