THE KING AND I - ASU Gammage - March 20-25

Music by Richard Rodgers, Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Based on Anna and the King by Margaret Landon

One of Rodgers + Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score which features such beloved classics as Getting To Know You, Hello Young Lovers, Shall We Dance, I Have Dreamed, and Something Wonderful. Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical 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.
