Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “THE KING AND I” will make its way to Segerstrom Center for the Arts February 27 – March 11, 2018. 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 school teacher, whom the modernist King in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. You don’t want to miss this incredible show! One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance,” “I Have Dreamed” and “Something Wonderful.”
