Shall we Dance?
Step back in time to 1860, Bangkok. British schoolteacher Anna Leonowens is hired by the bossy King of Siam to tutor his countless wives and children as well as to help with plans to modernise the country. Anna is headstrong and the King has very different cultural norms and values which leads to many turbulent confrontations. (In many of which Anna threatens to leave Siam!) They soon learn however that they can learn a lot from each other and after the magical and energetic “Shall we Dance” their feelings start to develop…
Magical Costumes and Characters on Broadway
The King and I is a truly magical Broadway musical. You’ll really be transported back to the 19th Century complete with puffy European-style gowns and their Asian counterparts. The characters are each beautifully portrayed. The show is enchanting yet bittersweet and with the original music by the acclaimed Jerome Robbins, you’ll understand why it was a big hit in the 1950s. The story is of course a classic tale and again in it’s revived form it’ll really make you think about different cultures and traditions. But you’ll also get to laugh a lot. It’s the kind of show you’ll always remember.
