Encore: The King and I: Live from the London Palladium (12A)

On sale date and times
The King & I

The award winning Broadway production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical comes to cinemas recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium.

Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, ‘Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen’ (The Sunday Times) Kelli O’Hara (Anna) takes to the stage alongside Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King) in a 'powerhouse' (The Times) performance. Also returning to her Tony Award-winning role as Lady Thiang is Ruthie Ann Miles.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and
tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

A testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre, The King and I features some of the finest scores ever written including; Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance.
