The original musical (based on the novel “Anna and the King of Siam”) was of course a major hit and Best Musical winner on Broadway in the early ‘50s. It was adapted into the beloved film starring Yul Brynner (in his Oscar-winning role) and Deborah Kerr. Two different Broadway productions have won the Tony for Best Revival of a Musical, including the current one. Rogers and Hammerstein's The King and I is set in 1960's Bangkok and tells the story of the unconventional story of the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a schoolteacher. This production is recommended for ages 5 and up, children under 5 will not be allowed into the theater.
