Broadway revival of 'The King and I' debuts at the Orpheum

The revival of the classic show makes its way to Minneapolis.

MINNEAPOLIS - From the award-winning creative team behind 'South Pacific' and 'The Light in the Piazza', The Lincoln Center Theater Production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s 'The King and I' comes to the Orpheum Theatre for one week only.

The show runs from February 28 to March 5, 2017. This 2015 Tony Award-winner for Best Revival of a Musical includes such beloved classics as “Getting to the Know You,” “Shall We Dance?” and “Something Wonderful.”

Cast members Laura Michelle Kelly ( Anna) and Jose Llana ( King of Siam ) talked about their roles of a lifetime. 

Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous 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.
