The award-winning and critically-acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I will be broadcast in Weston after being recorded at London’s iconic Palladium on November 29.
Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, Kelli O’Hara (South Pacific, Nice Work If You Can Get It) returns to the stage as Anna, alongside Tony and Oscar award nominee Ken Watanabe as the King (Inception, Detective Pikachu) in a powerhouse performance.
Also returning as Lady Thiang is Ruthie Ann Miles.
Based on the 1944 novel Anna and the King of Siam, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s fifth musical set in 1860s Bangkok,tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonownens.
She is a British school teacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children as part of his drive to improve the country.
With one of the finest scores ever written including; Whistle A Happy Tune, Getting To Know You, and Shall We Dance, and featuring a company of more than 50 world-class performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre – one of the longest running Broadway shows of all time that is regarded as one of the greatest musicals from the golden age of musicals.
It will be screened at the Odeon at 7pm on November 29. Tickets, priced £13.75-15.25, are available at www.odeon.co.uk
The Mercury has teamed up with the Odeon to offer three lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the showing in Weston.
