RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S THE KING AND I ~ See it at the PPAC in RI!

RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S THE KING AND I ~ See it at the PPAC in RI!

I remember sitting and watching The King and I with my parents over 30 years ago on laser disk, and I absolutely loved the story and music. I love that I can share this childhood treasure with my kids. Seeing it come to life on broadway will be even more impressive than watching it on screen. The costumes are sure to be amazing, and I can’t wait to hear the music live, which will include beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance,” and “Something Wonderful.” I remember dancing around the room with my parents to these! Such great memories!

You can share this 2015 Tony Award® winner for Best Musical Revival with your family. Just visit PPAC in Rhode Island October 30th – November 6th in Providence! This show takes place in 1860s Bangkok, and the musical tells the story of the unconventional 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. The story development between these two characters is amazing, and there are some great lessons learned in this production as well. Don’t miss it!

Show Description from PPAC:

“Eva Perón used her smarts and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world — while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. EVITA tells Eva’s passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater’s most beautiful songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “High Flying, Adored.” Don’t miss the stunning new production, directed by MICHAEL GRANDAGE and choreographed by ROB ASHFORD, that CBS This Morning called “THE SHOW BROADWAY HAS BEEN WAITING FOR!””
