Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I



Two worlds collide in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this “breathtaking and exquisite” (The New York Times) musical, directed by Bartlett Sher.

Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, "The King and I" is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).
