About The King and I at the New Theatre
Rogers and Hammerstein originally wrote King and I for Broadway in 1951, after opening at the St James Theatre to rave reviews, the London production opened at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in October 1953 and ran for an astonishing 946 performances.
In this story of East meets West, the widowed British schoolteacher Anna is hired by the King of Siam in his attempts to modernise his country. Although connected to the students, Anna struggles with not only cultural difference, but a tricky relationship with the headstrong king. Through her persistence and willingness for human connection, Anna helps to fuel a sense of openness and social understanding between her and the king in an attempt to invoke change and understanding. A tale beyond its years, The King and I teaches us that love can transcend the greatest of differences.
