The King and I
This American classic returns to Broadway in a grand and glorious (fourth) revival from Lincoln Center Theater. Set in Siam (Thailand) in the early 1860s, the tale introduces the audience to dictatorial and spoiled but kindly King (Ken Watanabe), who invites the British Anna (Kelli O'Hara) to teach English to his several wives and 77 children. He's blithely patriarchal; she stubbornly insists on being treated with respect; a delicate, wary romance slowly flower between them. Ages 5 and up.
