Following its critically-acclaimed sold out season at The London Palladium, The King and I tours the UK

Tickets from £13

Overview

Following a critically acclaimed Broadway smash-hit run, a sold-out season at the London Palladium
(which resulted in the biggest global live event cinema release of 2018) and a previous record-
breaking UK and International tour, this multi-Tony Award-winning production returns to venues all
over the UK.

Helen George*, best known as Trixie in the hit BBC One series Call The Midwife, will star as Anna. The King and I is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals – with one of the finest scores ever written including Whistle a Happy Tune and Shall We Dance.

This gloriously lavish production is brought to the stage by an internationally renowned creative team under Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher (South Pacific / My Fair Lady / To Kill a Mockingbird) and will feature a world-class company of over 50 West End and Broadway performers and a full-scale orchestra.

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

Further casting for the UK tour will be announced soon.

*Please note Helen George will be appearing at venues through to 29 April 2023 and on Wednesday - Saturday performances only. Cast are subject to change without notice.

Critic reviews

Sail off on a lavish voyage to Broadway’s golden age

· The Times (Palladium)

A provocative blend of bombast and subtlety

· The Telegraph (Palladium)

Kelli O'Hara brings radiant charm to wonderfully lush musical

· Evening Standard (Palladium)

If Bartlett Sher's glorious revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's fifth musical does anything, it dances

· WhatsOnStage (Palladium)

Opulent and intelligent revival of one of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s best loved works

· The Stage (Palladium)

A nuanced, subtly updated revival

· The Independent (Palladium)

The King and I has a gorgeous score and a big heart, and is unburdened by the layers of irony and self-awareness that tend to clag up modern musicals

· Time Out (Palladium)

The Broadway revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical comes to the West End with fine acting

· The Guardian (Palladium)
