The King & I

Tuesday - Friday, October 10 - 13, 2017 at 7:30 pm

Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 1:00 and 6:30 pm

Two worlds collide in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this "breathtaking and exquisite" (New York Times) musical, directed by Bartlett Sher. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein's finest works, The King & I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as "Getting to Know You", "I Whistle a Happy Tune", "Hello Young Lovers", "Shall We Dance", and "Something Wonderful." Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, The King & I is "too beautiful to miss." (New York Magazine).

Please note: this performance makes use of theatrical haze and fog.

The performance on Saturday, October 14th at 1:00 pm will feature an Amerian Sign Language interpreter.
