Known for its dramatic and richly textured tale of East versus West, The King and Iis an uplifting journey of fantastical proportions. A truly memorable love story about Anna, an English widow sent to Bangkok, and the King, whose life’s history has led him to aspirations of regaining the love of his people, the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic dazzles in score, dance and story. The lavish Broadway production with the inimitable Yul Brynner received five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and brings beloved songs, “Getting to Know You,” “Hello, Young Lovers” and “Something Wonderful” to royal life.
The longest-running musical in history sets up its barricades on the Arizona Broadway Theatre stage! Seen by more than 62 million people in 42 countries, Cameron Mackintosh's legendary production of passion and destruction has mesmerized theatregoers since 1985. The musical sensation has broken records around the globe and continues to enthrall with its timeless testament to survival of the human spirit.
