The greatest musical from the golden age of musicals
Hailed as ‘THE THEATRICAL EVENT OF 2018’ the multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I is embarking on a World Tour direct from its record breaking sold out season at The London Palladium.

The King and I is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals – adored by the public and critics alike - with one of the finest scores ever written including; "Whistle a Happy Tune", "Getting to Know You", and "Shall We Dance", and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers and a full-scale orchestra.
A celebration of the lavish heritage of the very best in romantic musical theatre from an unparalleled multi-award-winning creative team, hailed as one of the best working in theatre today, directed by Tony Award winner Bart Sher (South Pacific & My Fair Lady - Broadway). This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness this glorious production, as you have never seen it before.
